50th Day of School 2013

We were rockin' and rollin' all day today since it was the 50th day of school.  We started the day by dancing to Barbara Ann from Just Dance Kids (via Youtube) and got a real sense of what 50's music was like.  What a warm up for learning! 


After that, we moved on to making a favorite after school treat form the 50's...root beer floats.  YUM!  This was research of course so we could write our How To pieces titled....How To Make a Root Beer Float.  We wrote it together on chart paper, then everyone made their own piece.  Check them out in the hallway at conferences.

Our Math work revolved around the number 50 too.  Can't wait for day 100!!!!!

Blogger blues

So I wanted to upload the photos of our fun Halloween party while using my iPad and discovered it won't work. the Halloween party I went to take photos of the more than willing posers all dressed in their adorable costumes, when alas the classroom camera battery! Ah, I brought my iPad to school so I grab it and start shooting. Pose, click, pose, click pose, click and so on.  Fast I sit realizing I cannot get the photos saved on the iPad to load to the blog....waaaaa!  There is an option for uploading photos from your phone or android, but not iPad. Am I missing something here? What to do, what to do? If you have any advice shoot me an email. or I will try to figure something out.  Sorry you won't get to see the pics yet.
