Food Challenge

Before Christmas during our Food Unit, the kids had many food challenges.   One of them was to try out a recipe and eat a meal from a different culture.   Some kids were kind enough to share some pics with us! Happy Eating!!!

The Can Do Kids are taking the 5 a Day Challenge!

Starting today please make sure you log all the FRUITS and VEGGIES you eat on the record sheet sent home today!   Remember to return it to school on Dec. 18th!   We all need to work on this, especially during this time of year!

Click on the link to SING the 5 a Day Song!   The kids love it!

5-a-day Song

Here is the 5 A DAY game you can play too!




Seriously, one of my favorite books of all time~ At first, the illustrations blew me away.   I loved how realistic they were. Then, a few years back, I read this for the first time to my class and it melted my heart!   It made my heart so happy!   I was sooooo touched!   I use this every year in my teaching and it makes such a difference in my students!   It has such a great impact on them!  

Even the smallest acts of kindness can powerfully impact the lives of others. With  just a simple gesture (a smile) you could ignite a circle of warmth that flows from person to person, touching the hearts and lives of people  you  may never even meet.


I am challenging EACH of my students to PAY IT FORWARD this week.   (and also for the rest of their lives)  

1st:   Share the impact that Katie had in this story with your family.

2nd:   Think of 20 acts of KINDNESS with your family, discuss them and how powerful they are.

3rd: Pay it FORWARD to someone this week.  

4th:   Please leave a comment about HOW you “Paid it Forward” this week.   You as the student can leave a comment or any one in your family could leave a comment.  

ON THURSDAY– I will check who has left me a comment and we will read them in class.   The children will be rewarded if they and or their family  particiapte in this activity.

Good luck and have fun!
