Harlingen Football






I love to find time during Social Studies or a just a few spare minute here or there to show and talk to the kids about our community.  In Harlingen TX, there are 2 high schools.  This Friday the two teams will be playing each other in what we call the BIRD BOWL.
Harlingen High School Cardinals vs. Harlingen High School South Hawks
Our school district news station made these awesome videos. I love that we can show these short video to our little ones and encourage them to look toward the future and to get involved.  
Being involved, being a good citizen, and making good grades will make students successful!

Letter A A A A A A

The Letter of the Week is: Aa
The password for the week is: The
There are so many exciting and fun activities for the letter Aa.
It is September and just a couple of days before Autumn rolls in.
These are some of our activities of the week :D

Red/Yellow/Green Apples, Apples Apples

Activity: Predict which color of apple will be your favorite. Color/Cut


Thanks to the parents who donated the Red/Yellow/& Green Apples

How does it taste? Sweet/Bitter/Sour (This was a great follow up to our 5 senses lessons that we did 2 weeks ago.)




 How were your predictions? Did they stay the same? Change?
Now let's graph.  This is our first class graph.  As we progress through the year we will add a graph title, numbers, and categories.

We had a great turnout of apples that were donated.  Everyone was lucky enough to take an apple home today.  Now students have the opportunity to share our lesson today with their family at home and if they choose they can recreate our class activity at home with their family.






Our Craft Activity for the week.
