On February 2nd we learned about Groundhog's Day. The students predicted if the groundhog would see his shadow or not and wrote a paper on it. Then for math we made a picture graph of the predictions. The majority of my students predicted he wouldn't see his shadow and spring would come early. They were right! The groundhog didn't see his shadow, so we hope spring comes early this year.
The Pirate Pride assemblies have been such a fun school tradition this year. The captains of the month of January were Ms. White, Mrs. Broussard, and Mrs. Hall's classroom aides. They are great examples that everyone at Brookside can look up too. The crews of the month were: Mrs. Pulley's PM, Mrs. Gonzalez class, and Mrs. Hall's class. The Pirates of the month were: Sharlyn Moreno, Travis Nord, Parker Young, Quinn Root, Tyler Truscott, Pryse Emerson, David Hansen, Jaxon Beckstrom, Kahekili Wayas, Oakley Mortensen, Baylee Jenkins, Kandence Allgood, Yadira Aguilar, Nathalia Estrada, Christopher Ruiz, and Kyle Divine. Keep up the great work Brookside!!

Mrs. Pulley's Kindergarten class learned all about rocks this past week. We learned that some rocks come from volcanoes and then watched an episode of The Magic School Bus that told us all about the process! Other rocks have layers that you can see. We learned that some rocks can be colorful, others are sparkly. Sometimes, you might be able to find a fossil in a rock; other times there might be crystals inside.To end our rock unit, on Friday, we all brought our very own rocks to school. We sorted them into shapes, colors, size; and at the end of the day we wrote a class rock book. Each student made a page about the rock that they brought to school. By the end of the week, several of us decided to start our very own rock collections!
