    Let me know how you are making out with Google Classroom? I would love to hear from you!


    Thursday, April 16, 2020

    Today we begin on line learning and I hope you are excited about it as much as I am! Please remember to bring your questions to the morning check in meeting. Have them written down so you don't forget. Also remember to be dressed and ready to go. If possible,  no eating during our time. If your schedule doesn't allow that then that's okay. But we only have 30 minutes and it can go by really fast. Last rule for on line learning...Have some fun! Okay? See you all very soon! Have a great day!

    April Showers Bring May Flowers!


    Thursday April 9,2020

    Spring break is starting tomorrow. How will you spend your time and how will it be different from the past? My family celebrates Easter and this year will be quite different in many ways. Of course, I miss eating and spending time with my family but I think of the traditions we would do because at this time of year. What are some family traditions you are going to do this year?  Whatever you do have a great Spring break!

     So yesterday I talked about favorite board games. What's your favorite and so on. Then I thought ok, tell me your favorite video game. Now I'm not much into video games, in fact not at all. I think the last one I played was Frogger. Now I'm dating myself. Anyway, tell me what your favorite video game is but more importantly tell me why? Is it the graphics, the sound it makes, the characters? Not sure I could have the same kind of fun as I did at family game night? 


    Tuesday, April 7, 2020

    I grew up in a small house with two brothers and two sisters and my parents. Just about every Friday night all seven of us would gather around the kitchen table and play a board game. They didn't have computers like we have today so we had to occupy ourselves in other ways. One of my favorite games to play was Sorry. We would make teams and sit and have so much fun. Recently, before all of this, "stay home, be safe" stuff, I invited my brother and sister over for game night. We had a great time. We played Sorry once again and other games like Pictionary and laughed so hard we were crying! What is your favorite board game? Shoots and Ladders, Candyland, Monopoly? They are terrific games but I think it was that we were all together that was the most fun. In your opinion, tell me what is the best board game to play with your family? Think of good reasons why it is the best of all time! Then go and play...

    Good morning. As you begin this week looking into Google Classroom we are starting to look at Fundations Unit 9 week 1 words. Try to see the lessons and words and remember to practice!


    Friday, April 3, 2020

    It's Friday again! I want you to think about what day is the better day of the week, Friday or Saturday?

    Think of two or three good reasons why one day is better than the other.

    This will help us begin a discussion on opinion writing. Let me know your thoughts.

    If you had to pick an animal to be, what would you be? I would be a bird. One reason I would be a bird is I could fly! I would see the world from a different view. I could perch up high on a wire or tree and look at the world down below. Another reason is if I needed food I could go anywhere I wanted and find it. I could go and eat berries, and seeds, and worms. I could even go to a feeder some human would provide for me. I would fly to my friend's house and hang out with them. Finally, I would sing in the morning and wake others up. Tell them a new day has begun. I could nest at dusk when the sun is going down and dream of places to go the next day.

    Good day everyone!

    It was so nice to see you yesterday during our Zoom meeting! I really enjoyed seeing your smiling faces during this time. Hope to speak and see you again today. If you get a chance, look at Mr. Taibi's SEL story for this week. We will be discussing solutions to his problem. Also, I want to begin testing some of the tools you have in Zoom. We will talk about the rules again, tools, and the chatbox. If you have any questions please email me directly and I will do my best to answer them. Have a great day Bulldog Buddies!


    Tuesday March 31, 2020

    It's the last day of March, can you believe it? They say March comes in like a lion and leaves like a lamb. What do you think that means? Most people would say it has to do with the weather. It starts out cold and snowy, the lion and leaves like the lamb, spring-like and warmer. But there may be other reasons they say this. Tell me what you think?  Have a great day!

    Clean the Clutter!

    This weekend I cleaned the clutter. Ahh! Things look great in the Bernstiel house. Today try to take on a small project to clean up. This could be your closet, your toys, a bookshelf, or a drawer. Set a timer and get rid of any items you no longer need or don't use anymore. Then when the timer goes off see how much progress you made. This will also keep you on track, not to spend all day on the project. Remember I would say, "Look down, pick up, and throw out!" 

    Soon you will be getting an invitation through Zoom from me. This invite will be coming through on an email. I'm writing some ground rules for the meeting so watch for it. I can't wait to see and hear from you! Stay tuned!




    Good morning! Today is Friday, Yay!, March 27,2020

    Learn Something New!

    Today I would love for you to focus on learning something new. This past week I have been doing my best to learn new things about the computer! I am setting up Google Classroom, assigning a group lesson for all of you to watch, and learning new ways to teach you new lessons! I am excited and can't wait to show you my computer skills! 

    You know how I feel about them! Remember ELMO? When he wouldn't work? Or some of the math lessons? Lol. Well, I was thinking, during this Stay-Home and Be Safe time it would be a good time to learn something new. I know some of you still need to learn how to tie your shoes. Others may be learning how to log in from home to do your schoolwork, like Read-Works or Google Classroom. Email me back and tell me what new things you are learning. I would love to hear from you! Miss all of you very much!  Have a great weekend and help mom and dad out as much as you can. Happy Friday boys and girls!  



    Good morning! Today is Thursday, March 26.2020


    Today would be a good day for you to write someone you care about a letter or note. Tell how much you mean to them and what you like most. You many want to include a picture too!



    Hello and Good morning to you! Today is Wednesday March 25, 2020

    April is coming soon and it is poetry month. I was thinking about my favorite poems and this one came to me.

    It is written by Joan Walsh. I remember reciting it when I was young. Maybe you could draw me a picture to illustrate the words. Do you see what I see? 

    Morning is a little child

    waking from a dream.

    Noontime is a little cat

    licking yellow cream,

    Afternoon's a bumblebee

    on a honey quest,

    Evening is a soft gray dove

    winging home to nest.


    Good morning! Today is Tuesday March 24th. 2020

    Hobbies: Do you have a favorite hobby? Something that you enjoy doing just for the fun of it? I've been in touch with some of my friends through social media and realized they were all doing some sort of hobby or craft each day. One friend knits, another did a 1000 piece puzzle. Wow! Other friends are painting and sewing. Then I thought, "What are some of your hobbies?" Mine is baking because it relaxes me. The house smells good and I can focus on the ingredients I put in to make my special treat! Last night I made banana bread. It was delicious!  The only thing you need to remember about hobbies is make sure you clean up after you're done! Don't leave a mess!

    Good morning! Today is the First full day of Spring!

    Rose and I plan on going for a nice long walk later this afternoon. Maybe you could venture out as well.

    When you are walking, stop and notice some things along the way. When you "skitter" home jot down all the beautiful things you saw like the trees budding, flowers blooming, and grass getting greener.

    You might even want to write a poem about your travels.  Either way, get outside and enjoy this day! The weather forecast says it will be nice and sunny.
