Measurement & Graphing Data

Today we graphed the total number of colored conversation hearts. Each student completed their own graph. Next, we combined the results in an online Google form created by Mrs. Cross. We used the iPads and computers to enter in our data.
After all the data was put together, we viewed our results and talked about them.

We loved discovering items around the room that could be measured in feet or inches!

February Updates


Valentine’s Day

On February 14th we will participate in a Valentine card exchange in class. If you wish to have your child participate please label 20 Valentine cards with each child’s name. If you can help us with the treat, please return the bottom portion of this note.

We already have bags for the students to collect their Valentines in. This is still an academic day- we are not having a party for the parents. Thank you!

PTO Auction Basket- Help Needed!

March 2nd is our PTO auction. Each classroom designs a basket to be auctioned off. Our basket’s theme is “A Night At The Movies”. We need donations to fit this theme. Some ideas might include: gift cards to movie theatres or local restaurants, DVDs, movie memorabilia and snack food. All proceeds go directly back to OUR classroom alone. Last year’s auction money enabled us to purchase an iPad. Please send in any items by February 29th, and if you know you have an item coming, I would love to hear about it (Ashley.cross@sumnerschools.org)


Student Art Show

Next week our story is entitled “The Dot”. It is about a student who learns to believe in herself after her art teacher believes in her.

Special home assignment: Please have your student create ONE piece of art. This can be a painting, drawing, sculpture/model, etc. You can use basic supplies from around the house like crayons, markers or paint. Please bring in the artwork by Thursday, February 16th.

Groundhog day

We measured our shadows in non-standard units (groundhogs) and created a graphic organizer together to show what we learned this fun holiday!


Also, London shows off his Dragon mask from Chinese New Year.
