Taco Tuesday with GPD.

Last Tuesday, we were THRILLED to find officers from Greer Police Department in the lunchroom!  These wonderful men and women came to CCE for Taco Tuesday and to have lunch with our students.  Our students, and many other K5 friends, were so excited to share a meal with them.  They even gave out a special treat to each student for dessert!  We hope to see them around CCE again soon.  :)

98, 99, 100!

We celebrated our 100th day of school on Wednesday, February 7.  Students were very well behaved for their special teachers Nana Couch and Granny Best.  It was a day filled with sharing 100th day counting projects, reading books about 100 things, doing special math work, and dressing like 100 year old people!  Thank you to everyone who helped their child with a counting project or creating a 100 year old outfit! 

All You Need Is Love!

We had a day filled with LOVE as we celebrated Valentine's Day on Wednesday, February 14th.  We had special math and writing activities before our Valentine Stations.  Students enjoyed a special snack, Valentine Slime, and Minute to Win It Games.  They also had a great time passing out their Valentines!

Dr. Seuss is on the loose!

K5 celebrated Read Across America Week February 26 - March 2, 2018 in honor of Dr. Seuss!  We kicked off our Author Study unit by focusing on a different book and activity each day.  This event is celebrated for a week near March 2nd every year in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday.  His books are excellent examples of rhyming and often contain popcorn words young children know or have words they can easily sound out.  It was fun week and we appreciate all of our families for participating when they could!

Monday: Fox in Socks... Silly Sock Day!
Tuesday: If I Ran the Zoo... Fuzzy Friend Day!
Wednesday: Wacky Wednesday... Wacky, Tacky, & Mismatched Day
Thursday: The Cat in the Hat... Black Shirts with Red & White Hats
Friday: Green Eggs and Ham... Green Eggs and Ham! 
             Ten Apples Up on Top... Making Ten (Math Lesson)

Critter Keeper visits Room 004!

Hello!  After a brief hiatus, our blog is back and will be updated with our adventures in January and February over the next few weeks.  In February, I attended a professional development conference, EdCamp Greenville, and won a visit from the Critter Keeper as my door prize!  It was a wonderful show that scared and excited all of us from Room 004.  The Critter Keeper does private events, parties, and community events, so I encourage you to check him out the next time you see him around Greer or Greenville.  You can find more information at
Students were excited to meet several new critter friends and some students had the opportunity to feed, pet, and hold a few of the critters!  It was a great morning and I am sure your student was excited to share their experience with you!
