Mrs. Roy’s Class

              The 4-5-6 class picked the name Hawthorn as our new class name because this year’s theme is Vermont flowers.  We all liked the name and the majority voted on it.  In math everybody is learning about data with graphs, charts, and line plots.  In science, we are learning about the things both plants and animals are made of, even us of us, CELLS! It is so fun! We are learning what is inside the cell.  We are reading Regarding the Fountain in reading group. We have not started the book yet but know it is full of idioms. An example of an idiom is, “He must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed” or, “Her directions were clear as a bell”. We need to memorize vocabulary words from the book and are doing this with flash cards and by playing a game called ‘I Have Who Has’. We are going to compete against Sudbury’s 5th and 6th grade and we might win ICECREAM! As you can see, the Hawthorns have been very busy!  - Ben Crawford, 5th Grade

 Ms. Zauli’s Class

  Our class is split between kindergarten and first grade. Ms. Zauli teaches the first graders while the kindergartners are doing other things, like handwriting. Then she switches groups.

   We have been learning about butterflies. We have read books, done math, and writing in our science journals. We also let the butterflies go outside. I brought caterpillars in and Smith also brought one in. The caterpillars got into their chrysalis and then they hatched.

   We are just starting insects. They have six legs and we are learning about lady bugs. We are reading a story about lady bugs. -Elizabeth Crawford - 1st Grade
