Still-life Art

This month in art we are learning about still-life art. We talked about what makes art still-life and learned a little bit about the artist Paul Cezzane. In kindergarten and first grade the students got to draw apples on a colorful table cloth like Cezzane. Second and third graders drew still-lifes of pumpkins and learned about shading. The big kids (fourth, fifth and sixth graders) drew a pot of succulents from observation and learned how all art is made of basic shapes.

Johnny Appleseed Day

 On Friday we celebrated "Johnny Appleseed Day" with an apple graph and applesauce.  We got to taste each type of apple and vote for our favorite kind.  Yellow and green almost tied but in the end yellow apples were the favorite.  We created a 'pictograph' and then used that information to make a 'bar graph'.  We all had a lot of fun!

Kindergarten has been busy learning all of our letters and sounds! We learned that ‘octopus’ starts with ‘o’ and we also learned the sign language for octopus! In math we’ve started sorting objects! We learned that there are many different ways you can sort!

Reasons for the Seasons

Sixth grade students have been learning about the reasons for the seasons.  They were able to take data readings at four different globes for both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.  Then, students analyzed their data to determine which globe represented which season.  Students also found that their data for the two hemispheres showed why the hemispheres have opposite seasons.  Students were able to prove through this lab why Earth's tilt and revolution around the Sun cause the seasons.

Creating Collisions

4th graders at Meadow Brook Elementary are building scientific reasoning skills and strategies through this year's SEED Standards. Right now are learning all about energy - how it transfers and what happens when objects collide. 4th Graders in Mrs. Anderson's class designed an experiment to test what happened when balls of different sizes and weights were rolled and hit a water bottle. They chose to use a beach ball, kickball, a little whiffle ball, golf ball, and a bouncy ball. Through their test, they were able to determine the effect of energy on objects when they collide.

Mrs. Wray's Class Is Becoming Expert Typers!

Mrs. Wray's class has been hard at work learning keyboarding. Every day they practice their keyboard ettiquette and typing with their fingers on home row.  They even practiced with a paper on top of their hands so they could practice typing without looking at the keys. They're doing so well, they can now type 16 words a minute!
