During the week, we read the book "Snowmen at Night" by Caralyn Buehner. The children created pictures to show what they think snowmen/snowomen do at night!
Today the third grade students from Mrs. Lees class read the story "The Talking Cloth" to our first graders. In the story, a young girl learns about African Adinkra cloths. The children read about some of the symbols and colors used to represent feelings on the cloths.
Our first graders helped our older friends with a part of their Wampanoag murals. We worked together to create trees that will be put onto the seasonal murals that show Wampanoag villages throughout the year. We can't wait to see the finished products!
Four students from our class guided the whole school in our Stratton PRIDE song! Way to go!
We would like to congratulate our boys and girls on their hard work with the Arlington Giving Tree Project. Between our class and Mrs. Lees' class we raised almost $600 to help local families in need! As a total, the participating classes raised about $1800! It's amazing to see what can get accomplished when a community works together. Thank you as well to our holiday shoppers today. We all had a blast! Some students were even able to join us for lunch at Papa Gino's. We are proud of you all!
