It has been a busy, fun and festive week here at Bear Creek! We finished learning all about the Piedmont Region of Pennsylvania and learned some cool new tools we can use to present our projects after the holiday break. We also worked on writing narrative stories based on Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and we focused on using descriptive words to tell our readers about the food. Please check out our blogs and leave a comment about our stories!
As we said, it was also a FUN week here at Bear Creek. Even though we were busy wrapping up some things before the holidays we had time to fit in several exciting activities!
Red and Green Day and our holiday Carol Sing were on Wednesday, and many students AND teachers were in the holiday spirit! Check out the slideshow below to see some of the read and green outfits.
Then on Thursday we had a spectacular holiday party with Mrs. Towsen's class. We would like to thank Tommy's mom for planning such an amazing party. Every student had so much fun, learned some new things and took home a bag of goodies. What was even more exciting is that Miss Coleman came to our party! Many students in the Bair's Den said it was the BEST Christmas present to have Miss Coleman back, and I agree. Special thanks to Mrs. Gramm, Mrs. Locker, Mrs. Swanger, Ms. Gupta, Mrs. Bitner and Mrs. Fink for coming in to man the stations and make sure everything ran smoothly! We couldn't have done it without you! As you can see from the slideshow below, it was an extraordinary time!
I would like to take this opportunity to send each family and student of the Bair's Den the warmest wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. My hope for all of you is that you find peace, love and happiness during 2012
