Learning about Water Safety

Waiting at Northwestern for our Water Safety instruction.

Getting ready to learn to bob our heads under the water.

We bobbed 5 times to the right and 5 times to the left.

Learning to flutter kick and blow bubbles.

Jumping off the diving board.

Mrs. Stites' class went to the pool at Northwestern high school to learn water safety.  We learned to do bobs, front glide, back float, flutter kick, free style swim and we will learn to do the back stroke.  After our lessons some children went off the diving board.  Fun, fun, fun!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Mrs. Stites' class!

Celebrating Dr. Seuss

We made 'Cat in the Hats' using a small donut, white icing, M&M's for the eyes and nose, chocolate sprinkles for the whiskers, cherry and mint Life savers for the hat!  Fun to make and even more fun to eat!
Each of us made a 'Cat in the Hat' hat and we are showing some of the books we read.  Lots of rhyming!

Yummy learning center about following directions.

At the graphing center, the children guessed which Dr. Seuss book they would get most often. Next, they took turns pulling out Dr. Seuss books from a Cat in the Hat bag, and graphed the results.

I wonder which book will be chosen most often?

Fun and delicious Cat in the Hats!


This game of strategy gave the children a change to roll a die and then either fill in stripes to finish their hat, or block someone else from completing their hat.  Big decisions.  Lots of fun.
