Get Ready for a New Study!

Next week, we will be starting a new topic....Plants and Seeds. We have many experiments that involve dissections, planting, and graphing observations. We are asking for donations to help us continue our study of plants. If families are interested we are asking for: seeds, live plants to dissect, grass seed, and anything else you think that may support our study.

Laptops



We are so excited to introduce small personal laptops to our classroom. In Literacy today Alex and Manny both used them for publishing. This will allow more students to practice their computer skills at once.

Midnight Visits Multiage

Savannah brought her cat, Midnight, to visit our class during her All About Me presentation. Midnight is so incredibly relaxed and laid back, he allowed all 36 students to pass him around to pet him. All the students loved getting to know about Midnight, (and his wonderful owner, Savannah)!



































Inventions: The Culmination

For the past week, students have worked in small groups of 4-5 to create, design, and develop an invention of their very own. They worked together to draw blueprints, come up with a name, a jingle for an advertisement, and actually build their invention or a model of it. On Tuesday afternoon, students presented their final product and displayed their work in the office hallway. We welcome everyone to come through to see the inventions that are displayed this week.

Returning back to school after spring break, students have started a new inquiry project into INVENTIONS!! The students are so excited and have come up with some creative ideas. Groups worked together to develop an idea, blueprint, materials list, jingle. Students are working towards building their own.



Measurement

Students have moved into a new topic...Measurement. They have been discovering all the different ways to measure using a variety of tools. The students have been focusing on non-standard measurement and plan to explore more next week! Check out some of the photos of students using measurement tools!
