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!

Meryl and Charlie posted our End of the Year video on their Facebook Page!

So exited that our montage of Classroom Champions subjects made it all the way to Meryl and Charlie. We are happy they posted it on their Facebook page! I hope they know how much we LOVED having them as our mentors this year. Couldn't have been better!

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!

Meryl and Charlie Live Chat with Mrs. Regruth's room!

Our second live chat this year with Meryl and Charlie- our amazing, Olympic athlete mentors from Classroom Champions.  They were so personable and we all enjoyed our chat with them.  Charlie went to get his medal (at 6:25) and cracked the kids up when he bit down on it for them (at 7:01)!  Meryl's face was funny when he bit it too!
I love that even with the very time consuming, incredibly fast paced schedule they have maintained for the last year, they took the time to spend it with us.  I admire their passion, not just for their sport, but their passion for sharing with others.
We were incredibly lucky to be paired with them this year.  Please check out our YouTube videos on the Classroom Champions Playlist we made each month, responding to the challenges they gave us based on the theme.  We were always ready to check out their advice and work to put it to use, and then make a video showing what we learned.
I'm so thankful to be a part of this amazing program!

Ssshhheee'sss bbbaaaaccckkk!

Mrs. Longmeier returns to show us Synthesis Sundae! It's a way good readers organize their thoughts as they read. Before, during and after reading, the reader logs his or her thoughts in each scoop.
It's a great way to see how a reader's thinking changes as a story progresses! Thanks, Mrs. Longmeier!
