Hi! Welcome to our first Elementary Cottage Corner. This is our space to tell you a little bit about what goes on in the elementary class each week. In this week’s post, I will tell you a little bit about our class and some of the activities we have done so far this year. 

In the elementary class, there are 29 children: 18 girls and 11 boys.  The grades range from 1st-4th. There are three teachers in the class: Ms. Gina, Ms. Gigi, and Ms. Christie. 

There are a lot of work areas in the classroom like language, geometry, math, science, geography, history, art, music, practical life, and the reading corner. New work was brought in for the geography cultural shelf and we also have a bookcase for a library of some of our books. We have this backyard workspace where we can work outside. 

We did some activities to get to know each other. We made a puzzle where we each colored a piece that would represent ourselves and when we put it together, everybody’s piece was different but still fit together. We also brought in brown bags filled with an item that told about us. 

Last Friday, the teachers did a special presentation called “The Coming of the Universe”. It was about the scientific story of how the universe was created. It started with a balloon pop representing the Big Bang. In it, we learned about atoms, the Earth, the solar system and lots of other things. 

Last of all, in the near future, we are going to get a classroom fish!!
