New Tigers Arrive at ZooMontana - KULR-8 Television, Billings, MT

New Tigers Arrive at ZooMontana - KULR-8 Television, Billings, MT

Yay!  Director Ewalt said it will be about two weeks before the tigers are out, as they need time to become acclimated to their new home.  Might be a good time to check out this Groupon and plan a day at the zoo!

Blue at the Zoo

Please have your child wear a Beartooth shirt or a blue shirt to the zoo on Friday.  This could help us keep them separated from other children who may be visiting the zoo that day.  Thanks!

Kidbog About Zoo Animals

The kids each chose an animal from ZooMontana to research and write about.  We began by visiting National Geographic Kids to learn about our animals, then writing Poplets today with facts about our animals.  Some are finished and posted to their Kidblogs.  Be sure to check them out!

Zoo Field Trip

If you have not returned your field trip permission slip and money, please do so ASAP.  Cost for students is $6.  (This includes admission, an animal encounter and a treat.)

Thanks to everyone who volunteered to help chaperone our zoo field trip on May 16th.  Cost for chaperones is $2.50.  If you can send it in beforehand, that would be great.  We will pay all together to receive the group rate.  We will leave the school at 9:30 am, or you can meet us at the zoo at 10:00.  Thank you!

Thanks to the First Grader ... at Last! blog for this cute idea.  Kids had fun making their own pigeons yesterday!  We also graphed who would let the pigeon drive the bus.

Sidewalk Chalk

The weather is getting nicer, and we love going outside and using sidewalk chalk to practice writing and math problems.  If you can donate any chalk to our classroom, it would be appreciated.  Thank you!

Spring Pictures

Spring photos were sent home today.  If you would like to order them, please return your payment.  If you would not like to order any, just return the photos.  If you ordered class photos, you will be receiving them separately.  Thank you!


Today during math we practiced writing addition and subtraction equations outside using sidewalk chalk.  We then used a dice roll app on our apps to roll two dice and write addition or subtraction equations for the dice we rolled.  The kids did great!
