January 20

This week we did gymnastics in PE.  If we didn't ski, we chose our own games.

This week in Spanish we played Pesca and made posters about the Solar System.

In math we had math centers.  We explored weight and area.

Tonight is Game Night at school.

Today is Crazy Hair Day!

In science we created the phases of the moon with a flashlight and styrofoam ball (it didn't work well, though).  We also made craters by tossing magnet balls into pans of sand, flour, and cocoa.

In writing we wrote postcards to our parents from the moon.

We had a fun week!

This week we had PE and did gymnastics.

This week in math we worked with Base 10 blocks.  We made high numbers.

We had a snow day on Thursday.

In science we talked about sunsets, moon sets, sunrises, and moon rises.  We observed and recorded the moon in our Moon Journals.

In  music we practiced singing "It's a Small World" and "Rubber Ducky".

In Spanish we are learning words about space.

It was a fun week!

January 6

This week in PE we did gymnastics.  Yesterday in PE we had a choice of activities if we did not go skiing.

This week the ski program started.  The middle schoolers helped us get ready.

In Spanish we finished and  read our stories to each other about sports.

We started a new science unit, the moon.  We learned that there are different phases.

In library we learned more about the moon.  A meteor crashed into the earth and made the moon a long time ago.

We had a fun week!
