A Successful Bee Hive Removal!

We were lucky enough to have about 60,000 visitors all summer- a honeybee hive in our front yard about 20 feet off the ground. We respected each other's spaces and did not impede on each other's territories. And, since they are doomed to die at the first frost, we contacted a beekeeper to come rescue them. We were amazing to watch him carefully remove the hive a section at a time...BAREHANDED! Only 8 stings total- one for my son and the rest on the keeper. Not band considered the incredibly high number of bees we had! Enjoy this video that shows just how he did it! ***Any time, any place, learn!*** ;)

Countries that have visited our YouTube Channel!

   ​I did a check on the lifetime views on my YouTube channel today and found it has been viewed by 120 countries around the world!  That is just mind boggling to me.  I was curious to see, so I created a map showing them all!  I know some countries do not have internet and some have restrictions, so overall, we are doing pretty well! 
   Thanks to all who have visited or subscribed to the channel!

Getting to know you bags

Students were asked to bring 5 things that represent who they are in a brown paper bag. They then took turns revealing items that showed who they are! We had a ball getting to know each other! Great job, kiddos!

We ARE Classroom Champions!

Our end of the year Classroom Champions video- showing how we KNOW we are champions!

We made slides and talked about which video clips would illustrate each subject.  I love how it turned out!  I heard the song and bought the rights to it on Envato...and I think this was the perfect place to use it.  Enjoy!  And thanks so much to Classroom Champions for making this all possible!
