April 27

This week we had Junk 2 Funk come to school.  Junk 2 Funk is "junk" or trash that Jeff Erwin (our Artist in Residence) turned into musical instruments.  We played the instruments and today we get to have 2 performances!

It was our teacher's birthday.

The Montshire Museum came to do science experiments.  We took alcohol and water and dropped them on a paper towel.  Then we watched them dry up.  We also put a glass of water on the window sill to watch over the next week. 

In math we are doing number grid puzzles.

In PE we got to play outside because the gym was being used by Junk 2 Funk.

We had a fun week!

This week we had PE.  We had centers yesterday--jump roping, toss ball, twister, and hula hoops.

In Spanish we played Bravo and made alphabet charts.

We went to see the play "Henry & Mudge".

Squam Lake Science Center brought animals.  They brought a Peregrine Falcon, a turtle, and an opossum.  Some people got to go in a big turtle shell.

We had student-led conferences.

Next week is vacation.

We had a fun week!

April 6

Over the last two weeks we had Spanish.  We sang CuCu.

In PE we played Smart Shot.

In Art we painted blue collages.

In Music we learned a new dance for the May Fair.

In Social Studies we are studying maps and communities.  We played charades to act out a place in town and then we drew that building.

We started practicing for our conferences.  We will have our conferences next week (most of us!).

We are counting coins in math.  We also started fractions.

We had a fun week!
