The last day of preschool we had a pirate party and got to be pirates for the day. We ate popcorn and watched a pirate movie and helped the pirate find the hidden treasure. We even got to play with pirate ships this month. We had so much fun pretending to be pirates for the day!
Ms. Craner's class enjoyed doing a Pirate Break-out during our Pirate Day on Friday! Break-outs require students to use their higher-level thinking critical problem solving skills to figure different puzzles to get the right code to unlock the locks . They have learned to work together so well as teams to help each other!
Presenters from the Loveland Living Aquarium came to our school and taught the 4th grade students about the different habitats in Utah. They focused on what animals you may find in each habitat and had a very interactive presentation. At the end, the presenters showed the students a few different animals that live outside of Utah. The students were very engaged in the lesson and had a fun time learning!
PE has been so much fun lately. We’ve been working on speed, agility, balance, team work and focusing on making exercise fun. My favorite thing to do with PE is to turn learning and working on a skill into a fun game so the kids don’t actually realize they’re working. I try to create games and activities that they can relate to, use their imaginations and enjoy the game. This last month we’ve played Mario Kart, sonic the hedgehog, a fun hula hoop rolling game, yoga and the ground is lava on the playground and for May the 4th we had a star wars dodgeball week that all the kids loved.
