Skol, Vikings!

As you might imagine, Vikings fever is at a peak at Northview Elementary.  Today was a School Spirit Day celebrating our very own Minnesota Vikings!

  

   

We made some pretty sweet Vikings hats to wear.  Many thanks to Mrs. Gillen, one of our first grade teachers, for sharing these with kindergarten!


Of course, we had to take one with our silly faces, too!


Near the end of the school day, the entire school met in the gym for an assembly.  We wore our hats.

   

   


Mr. Nelson did a trivia contest with us!

   

Then our very own Vikings Super Fan, Mr. Ball, led the whole school in the Skol Chant!

   

   

It was so loud.  And amazing!
  
   

   

Special thanks to Mr. Ball, Mrs. Dahl, Mrs. Gillen, Mrs. Grittner, Mrs. Laak, Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Putz for planning and preparing such fun activities for us today.  It was so much fun.  We wish the Vikings all the best this weekend!!  Skol, Vikings!





Stages Theater Visit


We had the most amazing experience today.  Stages Theater from Hopkins, MN visited our classroom with their production of the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  It was an interactive play that retold this adorable story while getting our students involved.  The kindergartners LOVED it!  Many thanks to the wonderful Northview PTO for funding this great opportunity for us.  Please enjoy some photos.

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

   

We did a community writing project to thank the Northview PTO.


Then we were curious about something…we wondered how many things the hungry caterpillar actually ate in the book.  We decided to use tally marks to figure it out…Mrs. Grittner helped us, too!

   

That caterpillar was very hungry!
