Fifth grade explorers!

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Fri, 09/24/2021 - 08:43

Our class got the chance to become explorers and explore our way to the new world! This game required teamwork, luck and creativity. Each team had to choose which country would be their sponsor, Spain or Portugal. After choosing our sponsor we set sail! We had to use our skills in order to be successful on our trip. At our first stop we had to decide if we wanted to let our sailors off the ship and risk them running away or risk an angry crew. What should we do?? Our supplies got low and a few people fell overboard, don't worry we were able to save them.

Brain breaks!

Submitted by megan.oropeza on Fri, 09/17/2021 - 16:49

We work hard in kindergarten and our brains need a break sometimes! We love to do GoNoodle activities, which give us a mental break and allow us to jump and dance a bit. Enjoying being at school so far!
