Walking in our wooden shoes from Holland!

Walking in our wooden shoes from Holland!

Our Elf Chippy and our journey to Holland!

Hello everyone! I would like to introduce you to our Elf, Chippy.  The kids named him and are so excited to see where he is and what he is up to everyday in our classroom.  He is full of Christmas magic and so no kids can touch him (or he looses his magic), and if we are making good choices he flies to tell Santa every night and lands somewhere new in our classroom!  Check back often to see what Chippy is up to in our classroom!
In our Holidays Around the World unit we learned all about Holland today.  One custom in Holland is the families like to wear their wooden shoes around the Holidays.  We each had a chance to try on a real pair of decorative wooden shoes and try to walk in them.  Most all of the students decided that the wooden shoes wouldn't be something they would want to wear everyday!

We love our Guidance time on Wednesdays with Mrs. Knowles!  Today, we discussed things that "bug" or bother us and how to solve a situation.  We learned how to use the 4 steps to solve a problem or situation.  
1. State the person's name 2. Tell them how it made you feel 3. Please stop  4. Close the "book" (situation) and put it away (moving on).

Fire Safety Day!

Learning about how smoke rises and to never open a door if it feels hot!
A fireman showing us what some of the firefighters gear looks like so we aren't scared of firefighters if they ever need to come to help us.
Listening to why it is important to stop, drop, and roll if our clothes catch fire!
Going through the smoke house
We loved getting to see a real firetruck and all of its cool parts!
Thank you to the Washington Fire Department for taking the time and teaching us all about fire safety, we had a great morning learning from you!!!
