Monster Mix-Up

6th graders had the chance to draw a monster, and then describe it. All of the descriptions were shuffled to different classes and other students had to draw what they read in the description. Students got together to see how well they described their monsters and tried to match them. It was a fun writing and art project to see the importance of good details.

3rd Grade Hurricane

We finished up our first science unit all about weather and climate patterns this past week. One of the things we learned about was natural disasters. We talked about hurricanes, what causes them to be so powerful, and how they can affect houses and other structures. We then built our own structures and tested them against our "hurricane" (fan). We tested them at three different speeds from one to three meters away. We built some pretty strong structures because all of them survived!

Fall in Kindergarten

Today in Mrs Kadish's class, the students learned about the Fall season. They learned that there are signs they can notice that help them know that Fall is here. The students walked around the school with clipboards and marked down every time they noticed something about Fall. Some things they looked for were, leaves changing colors, leaves falling down, jackets, rakes, and pumpkins. It was a fun day!

Who Would Win?

We recently used our library time to learn about an awesome modern author, Jerry Pallotta. He has written many beautiful and interesting picture books, but the favorites around here are the books in his non-fiction Who Would Win? series. In each book, Jerry pairs up two different animals for a pretend battle, like killer whale vs. great white shark, polar bear vs. grizzly bear, and tyrannosaurus vs. velociraptor. The books teach facts about each animal, and the reader can use this information to predict who would win at the end.

Creepy Carrots

Mrs. Oman’s class had a wonderful time celebrating Halloween. They Read Creepy Carrots  by Aaron Reynolds. Then as tables/ teams they participated in a STEM activity- building a fence out of carrots and toothpicks to keep the Creepy Carrots in. It was impressive to see the students work together and think of multiple ways to complete this task.
