On December 19th West Parish first graders had a Jan Brett Celebration!  Everyone had a great time. Parent volunteers and teachers facilitated 9 stations across the three classrooms. 

#1—Mitten Cookie—The kids decorated a delicious mitten cookie.

#2—Festive Pattern Block—The kids got a mitten pattern block outline and filled in the shape with hexagons, trapezoids, rhombus, and triangles.

#3—Do you want to make a snowman?—Everyone enjoyed experimenting with fake Science snow!  It was so cool to see the snow grow out of just a small bit of powder.  We challenged them to see if they could make a snowman out of it.


#4—Mitten Math—The kids matched up mittens with number bonds, tens and ones and related addition and subtraction number sentences.

#5—Ornaments—To preview our measurement unit, the students measured their height and cut a ribbon to go in their ornament.

#6—Gingerbread Smell Test—The kids put their nose to the test!  They had to decide which ingredients had a scent.

#7—Mitten Bingo—The kids played an exciting game of bingo using our sight words.


#8—Holiday Expanders—Continuing our work with written expression, the kids selected a holiday barebone sentence and then chose a starter word for their where expander. 


#9—Pinecone Birdfeeder—Going along with the book Annie and the Wild Animals, the kids made birdfeeders out of pinecones to hang on a tree in your neighborhood to help animals that do not hibernate or migrate for the winter.Macintosh HD:private:var:folders:j4:79v317l13sd8md7x9vw68ggw4hx7cc:T:TemporaryItems:download.jpg

The West Parish Winter Concert was a wonderful time last night with our Kindergarten through Fourth Graders!  These grade levels came together to share some beautiful holiday songs with their friends and families.  They all did such a wonderful job!!  This performance could not have been possible without the help of our wonderful music teacher, Ms. Wolter!  Watch each grade levels performance below!

The year has started off really well!  We have all settled into the new school year and are so excited to learn!  October was a great month at school, with a lot of fun things going on in the school building.  

We had some visitors come to the school to teach us how some magic tricks are really created from science!  The kids were fascinated!!
