Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Today we continue to work on our engineering skills.  Our challenge today was how could we make a palm tree from keeva planks and how many letters could we balance on the tree.  We first planned the tree then designed the tree and then tried to balance our letters on the tree.  We had great success!!

Razz-Kids/Chess/4-winds/Extra Gear

We got to start the morning with 4-winds learning about different teeth and work with animal skulls.

Then we had a lot of fun with chess with Mr. Mills. 

On Friday, we will be sending home a computer program information sheet called Razz-Kids.  It is a great way for kids to continue to practice their reading and work on comprehension.

With the warmer temperatures, kids are getting pretty wet at recess.  For friends that go to village kids, you might want to send an extra set of gloves to help keep their hands warm while they play outside there.

Progress Reports are in your child's Friday Folder.  We are very excited to share your child's progress with you at this mid-point in the year; they have grown so much already! Please sign the envelope and return the empty envelope to school so we can ensure that everyone received their child's Progress Report. 
Have a wonderful weekend!

How-To Writing and Force and Motion

Today we worked on writing a how-to about sledding.  We then went outside to see how well we did.  It worked perfect!

Then we took our force and motion unit outside to try to make a ball move outside.  It was great to be outside in the warmer temperatures!
