February Show and Tell

It's time for my favorite monthly linky!

Shortly after last month's Show and Tell party, we celebrated Catholic Schools Week. Part of the week was lost due to three snow days, but we still managed to squeeze in a bit of fun. Students in grades 3-6 traveled by deluxe coach to Peak and Peek Resort in upstate New York for a fun day of tubing. Here you see everyone getting into their snow gear ready to hit the tubing run. I stayed warm and snuggly in the lodge, keeping an eye on personal belongings.

Our Valentine's party is the LAST "party" that students celebrate. When they enter junior high there are no more "parties" for the holidays. Our Valentine's party was full of fun games and yummy goodies. Our second grade buddies even came to visit and deliver special cards.

At the end of last school year I received a wonderful FREE kit from Scholastic and Nascar. Students build their own Nascar racers and explore science concepts such as aerodynamics, gravity, motion, friction, energy, and more. Here you can see our sixth grader racers, parked and waiting to be put through the paces!

Finally... a pic of my fur babies... This month is a picture of just Lulubelle. I came home from grocery shopping this past weekend, dropped the bag in my utility room, and began putting away my items. No sooner had I stepped away from the bag then there was Lulie! Nothing in my house is safe from the girls!

It's a great way to keep up with some terrific education bloggers.


  1. I am jealous that you were able to go to Peak n Peek. What a great way to celebrate Catholic School's Week. We used to live in suburban Buffalo. A wonderful place to live.

    1. This was the first time that I went on this trip; it's an annual event. Typically I stay back with students who are unable to attend. I was happy that I had the chance to go this year... so much fun! Oh goodness, Buffalo... the only place that gets more snow that where we live!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I can't imagine taking my class tubing! That must be so fun! Your kids must have really enjoyed your Nascar racers project too. Thanks for linking up!

    1. The Nascar racers were such fun to make and use as we learned about science! If you teach science to middle schoolers, it is well worth the look at... and it's free!

  3. Love your class field trip--I'm not sure I could take them tubing but it sounds like they had tons of fun!

    1. The kids had a blast even though it was quite cold that day! We do this trip annually, but this was the first time that I've attended. I'm so glad that I went since we've been relating our fun day tubing to all of the recent science concepts that we've been studying: Newton's Laws, motion, force, gravitational energy, etc. LOVE IT!

  4. Those Nascar racers are really cool! You can't beat the price!
