By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This week, 3rd grade made Thanksgiving Word Clouds in computer class. Students created a list of words about Thanksgiving in MS Word and practiced using keyboard commands to select all (A), copy (C) and paste (V) to put their list into a word cloud generator.  Below is an example of one of their colorful creations.

On Monday and Tuesday, 2nd graders had some Thanksgiving activities.

These activities are in a booklet they’re taking home after Tuesday’s class. Finally, they learned a Thanksgiving song (

Happy Friday!

Día de los Muertos is a special tradition originating from Mexico where families set up altars to commemorate the faithful departed.  It begins on October 31st and continues until November 2nd.  The Kindergarteners had a Social Studies lesson on this tradition and did a beautiful Sugar Skull art piece.


Have a great weekend!
