We had so much fun sharing our All About books to our parents this morning at our publishing party! In fact, we had so much fun I forgot to get any pictures during the party! I am SO proud of all their hard work during our nonfiction unit!

It was a wonderful Inclusive Schools Week at Armstrong! We want to extend a big thank you to Ms. Mary Turner for all her planning and preparation. We loved learning how to write our names in Braille!
During science time, students have been learning about characterizing rocks by shape, texture, and color. Students brought in their own rocks to complete a sorting activity. They made PicCollages to showcase their learning. 
One of our Hour of Code activities this week was to create LEGO mazes! Students had to use coding strips to program their LEGO man to go through the maze. 
Students are busy adding 2 and 3 digit numbers in math this week. Mathematicians at all levels of understanding benefit from using concrete math tools to help with adding and subtracting large numbers.
This week, students are growing knowledge across books! They are reading multiple nonfiction texts on the same topic. They are noticing parts that go together, growing their knowledge on topics, and spotting differences in the text. Enjoy a few pictures of students meeting with their reading partners.
Our current math unit is on money! Students enjoy counting coins up to $1.00. Students learn how to record money amounts in two ways: using the dollar sign and the cent sign. Enjoy a few pictures of students hard at work!
Students enjoyed packing Thanksgiving meal bags for our friends at Brother Bill’s Helping Hand. 
We’re so thankful for the wonderful Veteran’s Day celebrations we had at Armstrong today! The students had the honor of hearing from veterans that have served in various branches share a bit about their experiences! 
As a conclusion to our data collection and graphing unit, students recorded videos for our kindergarten buddies to teach them how to read graphs. We love using our iPads as creation tools!
