Fulton 104 spent the morning celebrating Valentine’s Day with our 3rd grade reading buddies! Every Friday our buddies join us for a fun filled reading activity! We read everything from books to poems to instructional materials and make art projects together! It is the highlight of our week! In honor of Valentine’s Day, we read a poem and made cards and photo frames with pictures of the kiddos with their buddies! It was a wonderful way to celebrate friendship:)
From movement, to classwork, to community outings, we're always learning as we go!
K9 went through many changes after winter break! We have some new teachers and classmates, and have had a great transition! This month focused on building new relationships, staying happy and healthy, along with learning all things 'winter'. This week, we made Snowman bowling pins, and practiced bowling in class, to prepare ourselves for our big field trip. Orland Bowl was a huge success and K9 had the best time! Check out our smiles
Kerkstra Room 22 took the winter pledge to "follow through" with the 3B's of CD!!! We participated in a variety of bowling themed activities to celebrate being respectful, responsible and safe. Students played PBIS bingo and PBIS classroom bowling. The month's celebration ended with a fun-filled outing to Orland Bowl!!!
We did it! We successfully and smoothly moved classrooms and schools mid year! Everyone has settled in nicely and we are LOVING our new friends at Fulton! We couldn’t have had a warmer welcome:) From students to staff, the Fulton team has helped us feel so comfortable...we are happy to be Fulton Flames! Check out the surprise visit we had from some staff and friends, including Mrs Megan, our principal..our kiddos really loved the posters and cards:). Thank you Fulton!
We made handprint calendars for those special people in our lives. Each month of 2020 had something fun we had to create using our hands: bunnies, suns, apples, turkeys, spiders, you name it! All sorts of colors and all sorts of smiles. Everyone's turned out so uniquely because we're all different from one another.
K9 has had a very busy week! With our winter performance and trip to Navy Pier, we are officially pooped! The kids worked so hard practicing their “Dinosaur Stomp!” They stomped and danced their little hearts out! We are so proud:) Next, was our big outing to Navy Pier Winter Wonderfest! WOW...lots of fun things to do! Giant snowman jump house, indoor carnival rides and lunch...we had so much fun! We will all be ready for our upcoming winter break!
K22 enjoyed a day of fun and learning at the Museum of Science and Industry! We explored, created and viewed the many sights and sounds of the museum during this festive season!
B12 is working on following directions. The students are making a "melted snowman."
Kerkstra room 7 was so excited for Mrs Melissa to come back after her maternity leave. Everyone made her a card to show their appreciation. Our veteran students made "welcome back" cards and our new students made "can't wait to meet you" cards! Each student had an opportunity to read aloud their messages and show off their artwork.
K22 visited the Tinley Park Public Library!!! We listened to the librarian read 2 stories and participated in fun activities! We loved how our students followed the 3 B's of CD in the community.
K22 spent an afternoon exploring the Oak Forest Fire Department . Fire fighter Nick gave us a tour of the station and the emergency vehicles. We had a great time learning about an important community helper!
