Halloween in Room 6

We had a week full of fun in Room 6 last week, with lots of Harvest/Halloween-themed activities. In math we measured with candy corn, created number stories  and patterns with Halloween counters, practiced dice skills with a game called "Roll a Skeleton," and used real pumpkins (thanks, Mrs. Lucier!) for wonderful math explorations (and a fun decorating project at our party on Thursday).

We also used fall/Halloween-themed literature for many of our reading mini-lessons, which was an enjoyable way to practice important reading skills. On Friday, Mrs. Lucier lead a very lively retelling of The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything. Ask your child to tell you more about the props used during this retelling.

Did your child tell you about our special guests from Colchester High School on Thursday morning? What a treat! Some members of the Colchester Theater Company visited in costume to share parts of the upcoming CHS musical, "The Wizard of Oz." What talented students we have in Colchester!

Enjoy this slideshow of some of last week's activities, including photos from our Harvest Party on Thursday afternoon. Thanks to everyone who sent in food and/or attended the celebration!
