Friendship - From The Eyes of our Kindergarteners

Kindergarteners are wonderful little people.  Here is an acrostic poem on FRIENDSHIP that they put together in our extended kindergarten program.  It pretty much sums it all up.  "Noodles for All!"

Hot as Summer…Cold as Winter!

Sacajawea’s second grade students attended the play “Hot as Summer…Cold as Winter” at  Jewett Auditorium on College of Idaho’s campus.  In this play, a lonely prince challenges his staff to make him something hot as summer and cold as winter.  In the end, not only did the heroine make him a hot fudge sunday, but she also became his friend.  There were lots of laughs as the students watched this comedy.  It was definitely a fun adventure for them all. Thank you to Caldwell Fine Arts for arranging this opportunity for our students.

Sacajawea’s First Grade Students Celebrate the 100th Day of School!

One day last week was the 100th day of school.  To celebrate, the first grade students drew 100 objects, counted by 10’s to 100, decorated 100 day crowns, made necklaces with 100 Fruit Loops, and counted different objects to make 100.  This celebration helps reinforce counting to 100 by ones and tens and it is a lot of fun for the students.


Sacajawea Students Attend a Boise Philharmonic Orchestra Concert

On February 7th, 100 students from the Sacajawea's fourth and fifth grades traveled to Brandt Auditorium on the NNU campus.  They attended the "Children's Concert" as presented by the Boise Philharmonic Orchestra. This was a great opportunity for our students to experience some wonderful music and to have a concert experience.

Read, Sing and Play With Your Young Learner ~ Leer, Cantar y Jugar Con Su Pequeño Alumno

All of us know that reading every day with our kids is a huge benefit to them.  Sometimes it's hard to come up with creative ideas. 

This website ( is a great resource for families with young learners.  There is a new story from TumbleBooks every day and there is also a song to sing and ideas for crafts, art or STEM activities.  There is a different option for every day of the year.

It looks like a great match for PK, Kinder, and 1st grade.  Try it out and let us know what you think.

If you love it, thanks go out to the Idaho Library Commission [I suppose they do, even if you don't like it].  Find more resources at your very own Caldwell Public Library.

At the bottom there is a link for a Spanish Version.
Todos sabemos que leer todos los días con nuestros hijos es un gran beneficio para ellos. A veces es difícil encontrar ideas creativas.

Este sitio web ( es un gran recurso para familias con pequeños alumnos. Hay una nueva historia de TumbleBooks cada día y también hay una canción para cantar e ideas para manualidades, arte o actividades STEM. Hay una opción diferente para cada día del año.

En la parte inferior hay un enlace para una versión en español.

Parece un gran partido para PK, Kinder y 1er grado. Pruébalo y dinos lo que piensas.

Si te gusta, gracias a la Comisión de la Biblioteca de Idaho. [Supongo que sí, incluso si no te gusta]. Encuentre más recursos en su propia biblioteca pública de Caldwell.

The items in the attached photos will be donated at the end of the day tomorrow (2/1). These items have been in lost and found since before winter break. Mrs. Brown has everything sitting INSIDE the computer lab today and tomorrow, so if kids want to claim something, they need to come IN to the computer lab.

Thank you!

World Read Aloud Day - Feb 1, 2019

We are looking forward to marking World Read Aloud Day this Friday in a pretty obvious way. Mrs. Olsen and I (Mr. Webster) will be reading in a number of classes this Thursday and Friday. 

I've gathered together a pile of old favorites and maybe new favorites.  I've got my eye out for a few more. There are so many great ones.
When our three daughters were younger, we read 3 stories out loud every night.  Great stories (and a few duds).  Great memories. 

Read aloud with your kids, or have them read aloud to you.  It matters.
