Apple Picking

We made it to Parlee Farms and luckily stayed dry! We rode in a hay wagon to the orchard and picked our apples. Then it was off to the pumpkin patch for pumpkins. After lunch we fed the animals and played on the hay maze. Everyone had a wonderful time!

Turn and Talk

This is an example of an exercise we call "turn and talk."  I give the students a subject or question, then they turn to a neighbor and discuss it.  I listen in to hear the discussions and make sure they stay on subject.  I in turn ask questions about what I hear. This is a great tool so everyone has a say, even if we don't have time for everyone to speak separately. This is a birds eye view of one aspect of our day.

Welcome to Room 101's Blog

Mrs. Smith and I are so excited to welcome you to our class. We look forward to a very busy year. Our blog is where you and your family can check out what's happening and see yourself at work or play. We will include any special events and information about what's happening throughout the year. 

I've included some pictures of our classroom, it looks very empty without you!
