Relay for Life 2011

Brogden Primary School spent the last few months raising money for Relay for Life.  Students and staff came together to raise money for an amazing cause! We were able to raise over $5,500 through bake sales, hat days, a student dance and a staff breakfast!  Our school booth also won for best booth at the Relay for Life site!!!  A huge thanks to Jennifer Malpass who was in charge of ALL the events!  Way to go BPS staff! 
My own personal reason for being there...my mom!

Mike Rowe

As teachers, we make all other professions possible...AND who doesn't love some Mike Rowe!!!

His perspective on jobs and the way the world views "dirty jobs" is interesting.

Crazy Animals

Our animal unit has begun!  My toes were a big hit and it turns out certain types of  pigeons DO indeed drink milk....more on that later :) 
Here is a FREE animal math station for you to enjoy.  Students will put the animals in order from least to greatest and then record their numbers.

If I ran the ZOO!

I want to thank Deanna Jump for her amazing Zoo Animals unit!  We will start our 3 week unit tomorrow using many of her fabulous and creative ideas.  I am so excited to start this unit I feel like I have been waiting for Christmas to arrive!  In honor of the theme I had my toes painted in a ZEBRA print!  I know my kids will love it! They often sit at the carpet when I am in my rocking chair and find it highly amusing to play with my feet, toes, and shoes!  There is one every year who always announces when I have changed my toe nail polish color! I heart first grade! 

(I apologize for those of you who don't like feet...I understand but just had to share)
