Welcome back to a new school year!
Today was our first day of school!
Like Buck, we jumped right in and started our adventure!

In the morning, students and families lined up to meet the teacher and hear a few opening remarks from the principal.
In class, we had a lot of fun talking about geography. Students placed push pins in locations they have visited or would like to visit someday.
Sometimes two push pins were required. Sometimes placement on the WORLD map and the map of the UNITED STATES was needed.
When Mrs. Yollis held up the globe, Sawyer remarked that she looked like the Roman god, Atlas! What do you think?

Wow, that tower is looking good!
Great team work!
Oh well, try again!
|A fascination with glue dominoes ensued! Look at all the different trial and error methods that were used to get just the right effect!|
Parents & Students
Here are some links for you to peruse as we start our year of learning together:

B. We also have a class Photo-of-the-Day blog! Anyone is welcome to contribute a photo or comment throughout the year. Join our 365 Photo-of-the-day project! :-)
