First grade is showing off their Christmas spirit with Christmas socks today!
Learning got Grinchy today in second grade!
We studied the story, picked out the problem and solution, and talked about how the Grinch changed his behavior and made a good choice to be KIND. We look up to the Grinch for having a change of heart and choosing to be kind!
We had phonics Grinch style with green pencils and talked in Grinch voices! We made a diagram of the Grinch, wrote the room with words that start with g (especially our sight words!) and we did some Grinchy math!
Second Grade took a stroll to the nursing home to paint some Christmas cheer on the windows for the residents at Pioneer Manor.
Kindergarteners learned about congruent shapes using the geoboards.

Today we went on a turkey hunt! We had to solve problems to decode clues. The turkey led us to the cafeteria, Lister, and the office! Mr. Hagge helped us out in the end to find all of the missing turkeys
Thank you to everyone who donated to the Elementary’s School Store Fundraiser. We were completely overwhelmed with the generosity of our community. Students were asked to share the fundraising information with family and friends via email. Anyone wanting to participate in the fundraiser could purchase items, magazines, or make a monetary donation to a specific classroom. Here are a few snapshots of some of the items we were able to purchase for our students to use in our classrooms.
Thanks again, The Elementary Teachers and Students
Every year the Gordon Lions Club provides every third grade student at Hay Springs with their very own dictionary. Today was our LUCKY day and we received our wonderful gift. These dictionaries are greatly appreciated and used continually throughout the school year. The Third Grade Classroom sends a big THANK YOU out to the Gordon Lions Club for doing this.
First grade explored spiders this week. We compared fiction and non-fiction reading selections about spiders, wrote spider Haikus, learned about different types of spiders and even made our own running/jumping spiders.
