Valentine's Day Sundaes

Valentines Day 'melted' our hearts away with an ice cream sundae buffet!  The students were so excited to decorate their own ice cream sundae at our buffet station:

They then enjoyed their sweet treats at their special place setting, set up with their utensils and Valentines bag for some 'pre and post-snacking reading':

Check out the Animoto we made to commemorate our special day:

An extra special thank-you to all of the parents that came to visit and assist!

100 Reasons to Celebrate!

It's hard to believe 100 days of school have already gone by, but our Kindergartners took the opportunity to celebrate our 100th day in style!  

We showed off our 100th day collection posters...

...and our 100 year-old costumes:

Then, after a long, fun-filled day of activities celebrating the number 100, we headed home with our 100th day of school certificates:

....and an awesome snack from Georgia!

It's Houston alright...believe it or not!

We just had to post this picture from our playground from earlier this morning!  We had the unexpected opportunity to learn the difference between snow and frost today, but I think it was unanimous that they're both just as exciting to see. It couldn't have had more perfect timing either- we're in the middle of our seasons and weather unit in Science!  If only it would stay on the ground for a little bit longer...
