Special Visitors

To kick off our Holiday Show and Tell, we had some special visitors come to our classroom. Mr. and Mrs. Epstein came to talk to us about Hanukkah. We learned all about how their family celebrates this special holiday. They taught us how to play a fun game with the dreidle.

We love Library with Mrs. Zerbe!

Mrs. Zerbe has done such a great job with our library this year! She has made it such a welcoming place to go to read a book. Each week she picks 3 students names that will get to sit on the beanbags to listen to her story.

Have a Merry One!

We were invited to come watch the third, fourth and fifth graders play their instruments and we also got to listen to the chorus sing their songs too! What a great show! There was a surprise visitor at the end of the show. Can you guess who it is??!!! :)

Lunch Bunch!

We had so many friends meet their reading goal for November! We celebrated with a fun lunch bunch in our classroom! Congratulations and keep reading!!

We like to go to ABC!

Mr. Anderson to the rescue!

After a night of strong winds, our American flag was ripped to shreads! Gabriel was the first to notice it as he was eating his breakfast. He saw it through our window.  Right away we called the office to let them know! Luckily, Mr. Anderson was able to replace it with an extra flag. It was the most exciting part of our day! The kids couldn't stop talking about it so we decided that we needed to write Mr. Anderson a note. He must have liked it because we saw the note hanging up in his office. Thanks again Mr. Anderson!

We are thankful!

We are thankful to Sydney and her mom for the adorable and delicious snack she shared with us last week.  It takes a patient person to put all of those M&M's on those cupcakes! They looked just like blueberry and cheery pies! They looked great and tasted even better!! :)


Thank you Cael and Hannah bringing in "goodies" to help fill up our prize box! If you find any unwanted small toy items as you are cleaning house and preparing for the holiday season, please feel free to send them in! They make great Bingo prizes for our "Fun Fridays"!

Prize Box

Our prize box is getting low on supply but the demand is still there! As you are cleaning house to prepare for the holidays and you find that you have too many happy meal toys, birthday treats or any other small unwanted prize items, please send them to help fill up our prize box! I guess that tells me that my kids are getting older when I can no longer find these items in my own house! :(

Thanks for your help! :)

Rainy Day Readers!

Curling up with a cuddly friend and a good book on a rainy day...

Puppet Show!

On Tuesday, we were treated to a entertaining puppet show thanks to our wonderful CSA parents! We learned about being kind to our friends at the park and about how to handle bullies.

Walk-A-Thon Assembly

Our walk-a-thon was a huge success! We raised a lot of money for our school! Sam raised so much that he won an autographed basketball. It was signed by the W.A.H.S. basketball team!  Way to go Samuel!! 

Tailgating with our Friends!

We want to thank our Room Moms for their contributions to our snack on Friday! They generously donated snacks, organized it all, and served it to us "Tailgate Style"!  Thank you Ladies for making our day such a success!

Bye Bye Mr. American Pie!!

Bus Rides and Bears Oh My!

Last Friday, we rode a bus to go see the Berenstein Bears at the Community Arts Center. We were amazed at what a beautiful theatre we have here in Williamsport! We had the best manners and we were so patient as we waited for the show to start.

We give the show a big thumbs up!!  :)

Lunch Bunch

If you read just five books to meet your monthly Book-It requirement, you will get a coupon for a free personal pizza from Pizza Hut! We also had a special "Lunch Bunch" with Mrs. Beiter in our classroom to celebrate the friends who worked hard to reach this goal


We have been reading, writing and thinking about pumpkins for the past couple weeks. We finished up our unit by carving our pumpkin. It weighed 16 pounds! We were surprised who was brave enough to reach in and pull out "the guts" with their bare hands!! Then we roasted the seeds and they were delicious!!

Apple Crunch Day!

We love apples!  CRUNCH!!

Walk-A-Thon Assembly

We had a great time at the walk-a-thon assembly last Friday. Check out what Mr. Michaels wore to help us  show our school spirit!!  If we raise at least $10 for our walk-a-thon, we might have a chance to help prepare Mr. Michaels for the pie throwing event! Samuel was doing such a great job listening that he was given a Millionaire football!  Way to go Samuel!! You make us proud!
