Elmore Family Update – April 9, 2021

Wow!  What a fantastic early April week we had.  Warm temperatures brought an end to the ice on the lake, the birds were singing songs of joy, and the children were excited to spend more time outdoors again.  This week brought the return to lunch outdoors and full recess together.  We were also able to squeeze in a couple of extra recesses!   This week …

Elmore Family Update – April 2, 2021

The consensus is in, and March definitely came in like a lion and went out like a lamb.  We had such pleasant spring-like weather the last couple of weeks and then BAM!  Winter is back!  Despite this, spring flowers are beginning to sprout and soon our April showers will bring May flowers!   We just need to be patient a little while longer.  The ice …

Spring is officially here and the weather this week did not disappoint!  The snow has melted from the majority of our playground and pick up soccer games have resumed!  The swings have been busy and a “band” is in the works.

Elmore Family Letter – March 19, 2021

It was another quick week in the classroom.  The promise of springs arrival was evident.  With days get warmer and the light stays longer, we are all getting anxious for the snow to melt and to spend more time outdoors again soon.  As the weather allows, we will once again transition to eating outdoors which will allow us to have lunch and recess all …

Elmore Family Update – February 12, 2021

Dear Elmore Families, Over the past three weeks, students at the Elmore School have been busy during their free time creating handmade valentines for the post office patrons at the Elmore Store.  Their hard work concluded Friday as valentines were hung on all the post office boxes.  This has become an annual tradition for the Elmore School (started by Mrs. Anderson), and is truly …

Elmore Family Letter – February 5, 2021

It was a short but full week at the Elmore School.  A fresh blanket of snow refreshed the playground where children worked throughout the week to construct a series of connected “rooms” stringing along the front fence and winding around to far side of the playground.   I observed the children plan, construct, collaborate, and problem solve through their play in a way that no lesson …

Elmore Family Letter – January 29, 2021

Dear Elmore Families, We had another full week at the Elmore School.   This week in Literacy students began the week by becoming “spelling detectives”.  In this activity, students looked closely at their spelling words to discover the spelling patterns.  My hope was that in having students do this exercise they would become more aware of the phonics relationship the words in their list had.  …

As is often the case in January, the snow has been persistent this week, keeping a fresh layer of snow blanketing our playground each day this week.  The children have been busy building forts and snow structures.  Inside the classroom students were busy reading, writing, and computing.  During our literacy block, we began our week with students writing their own dream for a better …
