Thank you, Midland Daily News, for this article and to our BCEL parent who nominated her!!
Ms. Terrill and Ms. Heider's Young Five scientists experimented with pendulum painting to experience the affects of push and pull. Messy experiments are the best!!!
Mrs. Wood's 1st grade class at BCEL loved playing in the snow this morning! Finally!! Snow!! They were very proud to be the very first snowman out in our play area!!
Our building is buzzing today with snowy excitement!!
Mrs. Dopp's 2nd grade scientists at BCEL have been exploring the states of matter. Today the class experimented with the state of gas. Scientists were given a bag, water, and Alka-Selter. Mrs. Dopp than had kids shake up their bag to see what would happen! The kids had a blast waiting for their bags to explode!!! Their giggly screeches were so fun!!
Great job little scientists!

Ms. Terrill's Little Lancers were having a blast at center time today! Ms. Terrill created a washer and drier for kids to interact with in the dramatic play area. The kids had such rich play with these new "toys".
Play is so very important in early childhood...the most important part in fact! Play allows our young learners to learn how to enter and exit into play with each other, practice sharing, conflict resolution, engage in a heightened level of vocabulary, and just plain enjoy each other!
Play is the work of our littles! Great job little explorers!
Your work is so very important!
Congrats to Josiah, Marcy, and Madisyn who performed in the Grove All Star Band directed by professor Andrew Rathbun from WMU this Saturday!
Way to represent the Creek today at the Grove Jazz Festival!
Miss Heider's nature explorers got to spend some time with our nature coordinator, Mrs. Pretzer! These young learners explored bones, tree parts, bird nests, and then enjoyed a story talking about animal prints. We are so grateful for Mrs. Pretzer and our nature room!! These kids had such rich conversations around what the bones could be, how to measure them, how they compare with one another, and where they could have belonged in a body. The vocabulary they used was AMAZING! High interest yields high results! These kids are so so smart!!
Mrs. Dopp's 2nd grade authors published their stories and got a chance to present them to an audience today! Authors enjoyed reading their pieces up on the stage to a room full of parents! It was such an enjoyable event put on by Mrs. Dopp! Thank you 2nd graders and Mrs. Dopp for all the work you put in to drafting, revising, editing, and publishing your work! You have come a long way in your skills as writers!!
Mrs.Cassow's kindergarten mathematicians created number partners today using play dough! Great job little smarties!!
We love when Mr. Hale visits our classrooms! "The Boss" came for a visit to BCEL today to visit, talk with kids, and interact with teachers! We are grateful for our time with him. The kids love to see him and tell him all the things! If you ever need a boost to your ego just visit an early childhood building!
Thank you, Mr. Hale, for taking time out of your day to visit us here at BCEL!
Kindergarten Round-Up at Floyd Elementary
I came across this board in Mr. Josh Wright’s 5th grade classroom today. When I asked a student to tell me about it, she explained students may add notes or take notes, depending on their need. I am so grateful for ideas like this and amazing staff like Mr. Wright. —Mrs. Moses

Floyd 5th graders enjoyed some game time with their friends and teachers the day before break. Board games are a fun way to practice patience when learning something new, winning & losing respectfully, and conversation skills.
During Mrs. Clark’s classroom visits at Floyd, students are learning to put their “brave in front” when practicing assertiveness and empathy skills.
BCEL students enjoyed learning about winter solstice with Mr. Steve, their naturalist from Chippewa Nature Center.
