Cat in the Hat visits Byrd!
Home of the Eagles
As part of the One District, One Book program, Nutsy the flying squirrel visited Byrd.
Our Kindergarten, first, and second grade students went to the high school to see the performance of “The Princess and the Pea” on February 13th.
They had a great time!!
PreK is always an exciting place to be...Check out these activities…
These are pictures taken at Work Time where the children have an opportunity to plan with their teachers. The students and teachers decide where the students would like to play, then, execute their plan.
Children are problem solving and building marble mazes discovering what works and what needs to be adjusted. Students are creating their own restaurants with real menus taking orders and collecting money from patrons. The sand and water table is switched out periodically with different materials.
Currently we have flour inside, in which the children can measure and estimate how many cups of flour it takes to fill up a plastic bottle. Also the Art Area is a busy place with children creating projects from recycled materials, painting at the easel, as well as stamping & writing Valentine cards for family and friends.
Afterward we clean up all together and then recall where we went that day in our small groups.
If you didn’t see it, check out the BES team on the NBC 29 news last night -
The experience of this past weekend was a once in a lifetime treasure that our amazing students will always remember!
