So... we had a special visitor at the Freeland Learning Center today. We have all worked on being very good this year and it was nice having Santa visit us today. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!
Mrs. Neering celebrated her students today for spreading kindness and joy to others in their class. From a student who wrote a personal letter to all of her classmates to a student who shared small gifts with all just to spread some holiday joy. What a great way to spread kindness!
It was fun having the green and red day today at the Learning Center. Thank you Mrs. Miller for sharing the holiday cheer in your classroom with all of us!
Today at the Learning Center a first grader returned to his former kindergarten class to read to Mrs. Simon’s current kindergarten students. What a great way to share the joy of reading!
Miss Hahn’s kindergarten class enjoyed writing thankful notes to special people in their lives during the kindness week. Thank you to Ms. Castillo and the 6th graders for leading us in the kindness week activities. Thank you also for the cool kindness bracelets which will remind us that Falcons always SOAR into kindness!
This week Freeland students and staff are celebrating Kindness Week! Thank you Ms. Castillo and 6th grade students for planning fun activities for us. Today students and staff at the Freeland Learning Center were all able to "Spread Kindness like Confetti" while they took part in color spirit day. Please remember Falcons, "In a world where you can be anything, be kind."
Students in Mrs. Lazarz's first grade class are studying how plants and animals use their structures to defend themselves from being eaten. Students used a clay ball to represent a living thing, and then used various materials to create structures to keep the comb, representing the predators teeth, from eating them. What a great way to explore some successful defense ideas!
After learning about owls this week, first graders in Mrs. Miller's first grade class dissected barn owl pellets to discover what they eat. They discovered several bones of their prey, including skulls, jaws, and the vertebrate of rodents.
Mrs. Neering's first grade class wrote letters to the veterans they personally know. What a great way to practice writing skills and honor the special people in their lives.
Mrs. Simon’s kindergarten class is working on matching different number representations to numbers 1 through 10. What a fun way to learn how to represent the same number in different ways!
Mrs. Kelly's young fives class is working with words that begin with the letter Ww. The students had fun making wigs. What a fun way to learn!
Freeland Learning Center was selected to receive a grant from Meemic Insurance for two Little Bit STEM kits.
