Goldfinch Room is a Lower Elementary classroom for levels 1-3 on the Toledo Campus. Natalie Fisher and Tonya Reynolds are the classroom’s co-teachers.

As the culmination to the third level study on the United States of America third level students chose a famous person to research.  As part of this research they also wrote about the state that this person was born in, lived in, or worked in.  From the initial idea of who to research, to taking notes on a graphic organizer, writing the rough draft, editing with a peer and a teacher to typing up the final copy this was a BIG work.  Students presented their findings to the community dressed as their famous person might look.  The first and second levels enjoyed learning about these famous people through their favorite teachers- the third level!

The week of March 2nd was spent celebrating the work of Dr. Seuss.  Each day a special guest reader visited the classroom to share a favorite Dr. Seuss book.  Students brought in a favorite Dr. Seuss book or stuffed animal to share with others.  Lessons on Friday all revolved around his marvelous writings.  During community time a book and snack “Dr. Seuss” style was enjoyed by all. Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!

The Goldfinch students started the day off with Natalie reading her favorite Dr. Seuss book Wacky Wednesday.   So we were all a little wacky today!  From upside down posters, to walking backwards to line up, and new crazy names the students enjoyed our Wacky Wednesday.  We even went outside and had recess at a different time!  The joys of celebrating Dr. Seuss are endless………

Our favorite Wednesday book.
