Veteran's Day Assembly

Friday was our annual Veteran's Day Assembly at Jefferson, which is always a very special event. The children were able to sing some of their Veteran's Day songs to honor our visiting veterans, as well as learn about the Honor Flight program, which sends veterans to Washington D.C. to see the memorials. At the end of the assembly, our class was very excited to have two veterans stop by our classroom.

Grace's grandpa, a World War II veteran, visited our class.

Cole's family friend, Miss Amanda, visited our class, too,

Cole was very excited to have his mom, Mrs. Fisher, read to our class in honor of his birthday!

We enjoyed getting to know more about Elijah, our most recent Star Student!

Nonfiction Museum

Your kids did such an amazing job last Friday as tour guides for our Nonfiction Museum! I was so impressed by all of the knowledge they had on their chosen topics! The best part was seeing them teach our first grade visitors about their topics. We had about 25 first grade friends join us and your second graders were so excited to give them a tour of their topics. From pumpkins to soccer, to space and volcanoes, your children learned so much and were able to share that information with others. I am so proud of them!

Showing off our nonfiction signs that we made!

Cole's little sister, Caroline, made sure she visited her brother first to learn about panthers.

Jalen was working hard to teach his first grade visitor about panthers, while Kellen was super excited to share about lions.

Nathan is working hard to teach Sophie about sharks.

My own first grade daughter, Aubrey, stopped by and learned about space with Amelia.
We ended our Friday with a visit from our latest Mystery Reader, Luke's mom!
