It's beginning to look like fall here at IHM!
kindergarten had a fun day exploring pumpkins! We used our 5 senses to learn about them, then we decorated them and tried different pumpkin treats.
PK4 learning to make pumpkins from play dough in our sensory center!
Eighth Grade got to explore the importance of words today by screaming Walt Whitman’s “O Captain! My Captain!” The 8th-grade learned through this poem that words have meaning and an author’s words have intention. Then, we put our studies to practice by finding the emotion in each Stanza! It was a great exercise in literature and a stress reliever at the end of the first nine weeks at Immaculate Heart of Mary.
2nd grade is reading non-fiction text about bats!
In kindergarten we have been learning all about fire safety this week. We practiced how to stop, drop and roll. We also practiced how we should crawl on our hands and knees to go under the smoke to get out of a fire.
On Tuesday the prek3 through 1st grade classes were visited by the oak grove fire department. They taught the kids about fire safety and even got to spray the hose!
Book Fair is here! Come see us this week in the Immaculate Heart of Mary Library from 7:30-8:30 or 2:30-3:30 October 10-14!
