Hey, Hey We're the Monkeys!

We had so much fun monkeyin' around together recently! We made monkey glyphs and the cutest monkey
cupcakes to kick off our safari theme for the year. The smiles say it all!!

 Noah was absent and missed all the monkey fun. : (

Each of our table groups are named after an animal so Mrs. Smith can call for our whole group at once when we line up. We had fun with these cool masks pretending to be jungle animals.

 The Lion Group (Can you guess who?)

 The Elephant Group (RTR)

 The Monkeys (They might just swing from the trees!)

 The Zebra Group (They run in a herd!)

 All the animals living in harmony!!

The masks came from Michael's. 
Such a great summer find for our theme.

Beautiful Ladies

Congratulations to the three little ladies from our class who entered the Little Miss Union Hill Pageant! Emmy, Hallie, and Madelyn all three placed in the Top Ten! Maddie won 3rd Alternate. 
Hallie won 1st Alternate and Most Poised. 
They are all three beautiful inside and out!

Are You Taller Than an Emperor?

We learned sooooo much about the different species of penguins and about non-fictions book features during our study of penguins in January! We really enjoyed measuring to see if we were as tall as a real Emperor Penguin. I made a penguin to hang in the hall that was 4 ft. tall like an Emperor. The class named him Elliott (after our wonderful principal, Mr. Elliott!!!). Jon was the only student who was actually taller than an Emperor!

Mr. Popper's Penguins!



















The kids worked tirelessly on their non-fiction penguin books. I think they did a wonderful job! They really showed off all their new found knowledge. My favorite page was the "About the Author" page!


 We celebrated the end of our unit with yummy chocolate penguins, "Anarctic" Juice, and penguin crackers!
