    Today one of our students brought in his pet snake, Jeffrey to share with the class. Jeffrey is a ball python. Students asked a lot of questions, learned some new facts, and there were even a few brave souls who gave Jeffrey a soft pat on his (her?) belly. Special thank you to Joe Thompson for transporting the snake to school and answering many of our questions.

  • Using the Geoboards

    geoboards We are learning about shapes and their attributes in Math Workshop. Yesterday the students created different types of triangles and quadrilaterals on their geoboards and then copied those shapes onto paper. We cut and sorted the shapes according to attributes: size, angles, area, number of pegs inside, etc.

    Today we finished our canyon experiment by adding droplets of water to our sand mountains and watching what happened to the "land" over time.

  • Meet Mrs. Hultgren

    Hi friends. Thanks for visiting my page. Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm thrilled to be in my 22nd year of teaching here at Hiawatha School. I have been teaching second grade for about 16 years, but I started at Hiawatha as a kindergarten teacher. I am super-lucky to share that I absolutely LOVE my job. I have a lot of fun with kids because, quite honestly, I believe that I still am a kid myself...
