Morpheus' Adventures Continue...

Morpheus is really fitting in at Clarion Elementary! He is meeting so many new people each day. On Tuesday, Morpheus went to Music class to meet Mrs. Silvis. He got to sing a holiday song with the students, and ring the bells with the music!
You can hear the class playing their bells during the slideshow!
Morpheus also visited the Library on Wednesday. He met Mrs. Barch and picked a book to borrow. He enjoyed having the story read to him. Morpheus really liked seeing YODA at the Library...he liked the light saber!
On the way back to the classroom, he peeked into the Gym. Morpheus enjoyed Gym class so much on Monday, that he wanted to go back. If Morpheus goes back, he may have to run his mile for Mrs. Craig!
As we continued back to the classroom, Morpheus discovered the Guidance room. He wanted to sit on the comfy beanbags. We told Morpheus that he "Always has someone to talk to at Clarion Area Elementary".
Morpheus got to hang out with Jim, our Tech guy for awhile too. He learned how to fix problems with the server. Finally, Morpheus listened to the story Snowman At Night at a listening center. He helped the students write about what their snowman would do at night. What an exciting two days Morpheus had!

~Morpheus Has a Busy Day~

On Monday, Morpheus got to meet our 2 secretaries, Linda and Lisa. He also learned the routines of our classroom. He helped with "lunch bunch" and calendar, and even went on our "morning walk for fitness" with us. Morpheus was a great listener in our classroom. He had his own card for our classroom behavior plan, and he kept his card on GREEN all day!
Morpheus learned about Fact Families in Math. He helped the students create their own Fact Families and then he checked them to make sure they were correct! The students showed Morpheus how Addition facts can be used to subtract. They also told Morpheus their Doubles facts to 20.
In Reading today, Morpheus read the Decodable Readers with the students. He learned that long /o/ 'says his name'. Morpheus learned many new long /o/ words. He also learned contractions! Morpheus learned that I am = I'm, do not = don't and I will = I'll.


Morpheus really liked Mrs. B's new STEELERS laptop! He heard all about the STEELERS when he was in room B-7. Morpheus thinks his favorite players are "Big Ben" and Hines Ward.

Morpheus enjoyed our Special class today, which was gym...and he especially liked recess! It was a little chilly for him, but he had a blast sliding down the slide and hanging out with the girls! Morpheus also enjoyed the 'good-bye squeezes' he got at the end of the day.

Welcome to Clarion Area Elementary!


Morpheus arrived at Clarion Area Elementary at the end of the day on Friday, December 7th. The students were so excited to see him! He arrived just in time to see that Sinterklaas had visited! Morpheus thought the wooden shoes the students made were really cool. He wanted a bite of the cookie that Sinterklaas left for the students too!

Morpheus really got excited when he saw all of the snow outside! He wanted to play in it, but Mrs. B had to remind him that he needed to be dressed in his 'winter gear' first! She didn't want Morpheus to get sick...so she only let him sit for a minute to get a quick picture.

Morpheus can not wait until Monday so he can enjoy a full day in room B-7!

Farewell Jacksonwald


I had a great time visiting Jacksonwald Elementary. I made so many friends and learned so much! I never knew that sound could travel through solids. I learned how to measure elapsed time and use a schedule. I also learned a lot about writing for an audience and how to make a movie. The field trips were great: Daniel Boone's homestead, the Pagoda, Tom Sturgis pretzels, a farm, and the Reading Railroad! It's been a blast at Jacksonwald, and I'll miss all of my new friends. However, it's time to move on to new adventures. Farewell, Jacksonwald! Hello, Clarion!

Morpheus Visits the Railroad


Morpheus went on the ride of his life! Morpheus visited the WK&S railroad in Kempton, PA with Sarah. They rode from Kempton to Wanamaker's Station. A special surprise visitor met Morpheus on the train ride... Santa Claus! Morpheus had a great time visiting the railroad.
