Autumn is such a beautiful time in Vermont!  We have enjoyed many books about fall and the changes that are taking place.  Our class decided to do a rewrite of Leaf Man, by Lois Ehlert.
Students collected leaves and created their own Leaf Man traveling through Richmond. 
We hope you enjoy our book.

Fourth Grade Buddies


Ms. Darby's fourth grade class is our buddy class.  We will be connecting with them throughout the school year.  We have enjoyed hiking, playing games, reading books and doing projects with them.
Thursday, October 11 our buddy teams made beautiful fall leaves out of tissue paper, construction paper and glue.  Each fourth grader and kindergarten buddy wrote a poem together to accompany their leaves.  Fourth graders typed up the poems.  The poems and leaves are now on display in the RES library.

Audubon Field Trip

Audubon Field Trip
Thursday, October 4, 2012

A big thank you to our parent volunteers who helped chaperone our field trip to
the Audubon.  The weather cooperated and we all enjoyed our time outside.  Students
noticed many signs of Autumn.  As they hiked through the woods they collected
seeds and found insects and other animals hiding under logs and leaves.  A
highlight was the discovery of a 7 inch spotted salamander.  In the field
students used nets to sweep for insects.  The Audubon teachers helped us discover
many ways that plants and animals get ready for winter.
