Principal Moment

During the last week before Christmas Break some students bring in gifts for their teachers.  It is very sweet.  Sometimes you’ll find a gift mysteriously placed on your desk at recess.  Sometimes they’ll hand it to you and say, “My mom told me to give you this.  I don’t know what it is.”  And sometimes the gifts come wrapped with lots of love and masking tape.  Those were my personal favorite.

I use to try to wait till vacation to open my presents, but students always beg you to unwrap them. 

“Thank you for the necklace you made.  I can’t wait to wear it. “

“Thank you for the orange Kleenex box cover.  I like how you wrote your name so big with purple glitter glue.”

“Thank you for the safety pin and paper clip Christmas tree ornament.  You made this?!  Wow!  I thought for sure you bought it!”

“Ohhh…thank you.  It’s beautiful.  I love it.  You made it?...Can you tell me about it?...Of course it’s a paperweight! Oh, it’s a beautiful paperweight.  Thank you so much for the paperweight.  Look everyone, it’s a paperweight.  See?”

“Oh thank you for that hug…how did you know that is what I wanted and it’s fits me perfectly, just my size!!”

Merry Christmas my dear Riverview Community!!!  I hope each and every one has a wonderful holiday season filled with cheer and surprises, simply because you deserve it!

Ms. Moss' Christmas Project

The kids in my class researched and voted on a service project that they would like to do as a class. Once they decided on an idea, they made a speech for how they would ask neighbors and family to help them. The idea they had was to collect blankets for the Humane Society. So far we have a small corner of the room filled with blankets and the goal is to fill my Corolla with what they’ve gathered. This is them making a blanket to add to the collection.  

Christmas fun!

In our class, we have been working on "How-to" writing. We had 6th-grade buddies come to help us publish our final drafts. We used a program called Adobe Spark which created an online book. The students added pictures to their book and recorded himself or herself reading their book.
