Here are some pictures from that night--
This pic of one of my students welcomed everyone to our room.
This was the view from the door of my room looking in.
Our silly sloth writing
Here's a close-up
Some of our rain forest explorers
The kids liked reading the riddle to their parents.
A little river cruise...watch out for the piranhas!
The view from my backdoor.
The parents loved the paper version of their child sitting at the desks.
Some plants from the rain forest (a bromeliad on the left, can't remember the one on right). Lots of pics on table from my trip to Costa Rica with many animals we learned about.
We made 2 graphs: the yellow stickers represent my students and during Open House their families added pink stickers to show their favorites. We enjoyed comparing and seeing what the favorites were!
Each student did an animal research report.
Making the animals was a favorite activity for all the kids!
This is what was on each student's desk.
The kids couldn't believe how much their writing improved over the school year!
The kids made up their own rain forest word problems using addition or subtraction.
So there's a peek into my classroom. Hope you enjoyed it! I was so proud of the kids and all the wonderful work they did! Their families LOVED everything we did too.
Now it's time to enjoy Summer vacation!!
