Learning about the scientific method during science EXTRA was such a fun experience. Our last day we made hypotheses about what would happen if we put oil and water together, and asked questions about why the water went to the bottom. It was great to see their reactions as the food dye sunk to the bottom […]
We had a great discussion with baseball players who were willing to come to our class and share more about their lives. We learned that something they do that is similar to us is read! We were in awe as they read us stories and answered our questions. What a great memory!
We loved learning about the importance of loving those around us and especially our families. We painted hearts and wrote about why we love our families, passed out valentines, and made and baked heart shaped bread. So much love <3 in our class!
We have survived One Hundred Days of School! It was so fun to do everything 100 times and to think about how many pancakes we each would get when we had 100 of them. We made a 100’s day person, wore 100 things on our shirts, and did 100 math problems. A day to remember […]
Science extra started off with two experiments that we first had questions about and then made hypotheses for. Our first experiment we mixed a borax solution and glue together. The students made a hypothesis that it would explode, bubble, and rise when they got mixed together. They sure had a surprise when it ended up […]
Our class loved using pipets and filling “clouds” with rain, hail, snow, and sleet. When the “clouds” got heavy enough they started “raining” down. It was fun to see the kids get into it and learn about the water cycle.
For our last day before Christmas break we celebrated with some Polar Express tickets, hot chocolate, and all day Polar Express learning activities! It was so fun to see them get into the theme and show up in their pj’s, get their tickets “punched” and sing to the Christmas music. Thank you to the parents who […]
For Christmas Around the World the students were able to “get on an airplane” and go to Mexico, Germany, Argentina, America, and Israel. They had a blast participating in activities that children around the world play during the holidays, making Poinsettias, and learning about the special traditions around the world.
For our Christmas ornaments this year we took pictures to be in a snow globe. Their faces and poses were too good not to post 😉
