Virtual Field Trip to Hawaii Volcano National Park

We are about to embark on writing a personal narrative about a place we’ve enjoyed and traveled. When contemplating what I should write about, Hawaii was definitely the winner.

Yesterday, I shared some pictures from my wedding in Maui and then shared pictures of the black sand beaches we visited while on the Big Isle, Hawaii. I decided to actually take my students to Hawaii through a virtual field trip. We had a blast!

Today, we brainstormed where we’ve been and how we can recreate that trip for our readers through description, vivid verbs, and sensory language.

Tomorrow, we will begin writing! I’m excited to learn about all the places our children have ventured.

Sweet Memories – Solo Cup Team Building

I’ve sure missed my kiddos while being out on medical leave (three more weeks, and I’m back! :). It’s been hard to sit so still and let others care for me after neck surgery. However, I’m following doctor’s orders.

I was looking back at pictures from the first weeks I was with my students. One of my favorite memories was an ice breaker activity we did at the beginning of the year. We learned to listen to others and to work as a team if we wanted to be successful.

Here’s a little sneak peek into that fun day!

See you soon, kiddos! Can’t wait!

Welcome to Sixth Grade

I want to welcome all of you back. I hope you’ve had a sensational summer.

School is right around the corner. I’ve been in “our classroom” working hard to get it ready. I’m looking forward to being your writing teacher. We have a lot of fun learning ahead of us.

I can’t wait to see (meet) you on Monday, August 12 at Meet the Teacher from 5:00-6:30. At 5:00, there’s an informational meeting for sixth grade in the cafeteria and then at 5:30, it’s time to meet your teachers. You can bring your supplies and leave them in your locker, or just bring them on the first day.

It’s going to be a phenomenal year! I can’t wait!

***I communicate with parents frequently. Please text @k28k4k3 to 81010 to sign up for my texts. Download the Remind App to receive notifications and be able to message back and forth. Let me know if you have any problems signing up. I will also be handing this information out at Meet the Teacher night. 

Blessings,

Mrs. Lobue (aka Mrs. Boo)
