Chirping Crickets

Math problems, Inca videos, Guided Reading groups,Writing Workshop, Science posters and Student Council- in the background of all these activities we could hear chirping crickets. Check out the Seymour video page and share our excitement as Seymour feasts on his favorite meal!  Thanks to the wonderful Ms. Pavlicek and our awesome Science Center for our visitor.
Have a great weekend!!

Welcome Seymour!

We are the proud caretakers of Seymour, an eastern box turtle.  He is fond of crunchy crickets and tasty mealworms.  We have researched some fascinating facts about all kinds of turtles and will be writing some poems to show what we've learned.  Stay tuned for some fun and  informative poetry from the turtle-loving fifth graders of room 13!
