The pre-school recently received new computers. These little computers can do many things!!! They look like a miniature computer and can fold and rotate into a tablet. Students in the Little Cat room have been practicing paths of movement, beginning letter writing, learning songs, identifying numbers, counting quantities and so many other fun educational activities. It is our hope that students will learn the value of technology to be used as a tool for investigation and innovation. Thank you Greenfield Administration and Board of Education!!!

Students in the Little Cat Room began a unit about the Postman and mailing letters. Today, we read about many different types of mail, letters, cards and advertisements. We wrote our own letter to a friend in our classroom, addressed the envelope and placed stamps on it. (Thank you, Ms. Reid) Once our letter was ready, we walked to the office to see Ms. Rachel. Ms. Rachel sees the postman everyday, and she said she would give our letter to him so that he could deliver it to our friend. We also wrote letters to each other that we mailed in our classroom mailbox to be delivered to friends here at school. This was a really fun activity!

Today, Greenfield Elementary students celebrated the 100th Day of School for the 2018-19 school year. Some students decorated t-shirts with 100 of something on them. Pennies, gumballs, googly eyes and stars were used to help us celebrate. It's hard to believe we are over half way done for the year. The next few months are very important as we continue to prepare our students for moving on to the next grade level and MAP testing.

The pre-school playground received a new tree last Friday. The students were so excited to watch the truck with the tree and machinery to plant the new tree pull in. We watched all morning as they measured and dug a hole. We were able to see them set the new tree and saw the big ball of roots. Our tree is very tall and strong. We are so excited for the shade it will provide us!! Thank you Greenfield Administration, Board of Education and Pinewood Nursery!!!

Happy #GivingTuesday! Today I am choosing to #CaretoGive and support Care to Learn Greenfield which provides immediate funding to meet emergent needs in the areas of health, hunger, and hygiene so every student can be successful in school. A coat. A meal. A pair of eyeglasses. These are the simple things that often stand between a child and their ability to engage in learning and be accepted by their peers. Join me in supporting CaretoLearn Greenfield, and your donations will help students succeed! Go to https://caretolearn.org/southwest-missouri/greenfield/ to donate. Thank you!
