Invasion from Mars

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on Thu, 10/29/2020 - 10:05

Each 4th grade class has been working hard learning a readers theater called,”Invasion from Mars.” It was fun to see the creativity of the students as they made props, practiced lines, and helped the play come together. Each 4th grade class invited a different 3rd grade class in to watch the play. The students had so much fun performing for other students. It was a rewarding experience and they already want to do another!

We had so much fun learning about China and Mexico for our 3rd Grade Culture Day this month! We love the opportunity we have to learn new things about other cultures.

Claudia Fisher and her friend Eliza taught us all about Mexico and the origin behind the “Day of the Dead” celebration. We loved learning about how they honor their ancestors and celebrate them during that holiday.

Mrs. Peterson's First Grade Class had been working hard on learning about predicting in reading and writing. Today we wrote 4 clues to help you predict what we are going to be for Halloween. Then you can lift the ghost and see if your prediction is correct.

Musical Carnival

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on Thu, 10/22/2020 - 10:08

In Mrs. Blair's music class this week we have been learning about "Carnival of the Animals" by Camille Saint Saens. We have been playing  "carnival games" while listening to each movement in the piece of music.  From the slowed down version of the "can-can" for the tortoise (slowly stacking cups) to the wild donkey race (musical chairs), we had a great time learning and having fun.

In Computers the Kindergarteners have been practicing mouse control, learning about what a computer is and parts of a computer.  We are getting better at controlling where we click with the mouse. We have been doing iReady and excelling at how to navigate iReady.  We earned our first Game Day!  We have fun playing games on the computer.  We are working hard to earn another game day!
