Fun with the Fifties



What better way to celebrate 50 days of school than by celebrating the 50’s. There have been so many changes during our 50 days of school that we decided to look at the many changes that have occurred since the 50’s. It has definitely been a Blast from the Past! 
The majority, if not all, of our students were unfamiliar with many of the items we brought in to share. Do you remember the rotary telephones or typewriters? Our students were amazed by the record player and referred to the vinyl records as CD’s. And the jukebox was an iBox. They really enjoyed looking and working with some of these blasts from the pasts.
The best part though, was the Sock Hop! We slicked back our hair or put it in ponytails. We wore our jeans rolled up and poodle skirts. We tried to blow bubbles (some of us actually did) with bubble gum and we danced to music from the 50’s. We definitely had fun with the fifties!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Although, many miles separate us from our families, Thanksgiving unites us around a common ground -  to be thankful for the things that matter:  family. 

Many of us are far from our families and will not be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with them, so please keep us close to your hearts and thoughts and also remember those who serve our nation  and who may not be able to be with their families this Thanksgiving.  Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.  I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Time to Be Thankful



For some reason this year has seemed to move at a frantic pace. It seems like we take one step forward and then two steps back and it is already the middle of November!
We were having a hard time getting in the “thankful” spirit when planning our Native American project when we came across this prayer:

Hold on to what is good,
Even if it's a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it's easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I'll be gone away from you.
Pueblo Prayer

So we are going to hold on to our sanity by remembering to hold onto the things that are important family, friends and those little people who enter our classrooms and our hearts each day.
