100th Day of School

Attributions: 

Recently we celebrated the 100th day of school!  There were a lot of celebrations held around our school.  In fifth grade recently, the student wrote about what their life would have been like if they were 100 years old.  Then we aged them to look 100.

For the first grades, 100 day celebrations, we dressed up as if we were 100 years old, we stacked 100 cups, made fruit loop necklaces with 100 fruit loops, laid out our 100 items we brought from home so see how far they would go and used an ipad app to make us look 100 years old and drew it on a paper! We also wrote about what we want to do when we are 100! FUN, FUN DAY!

Second grade dressed up as if they were 100 years old!  It was fun to see all the “old men and old women” wandering around the halls!  Mrs. Graves’ class in fourth grade celebrated by having a reading marathon!  It’s exciting to know that we are 100 days smarter and look forward to the rest of the year.

Physical Changes of Matter

In our first science unit, Miss Bird’s fifth grade has been studying about physical changes.  We know that a physical change will change what something looks like and it is reversible. In this experiment we were wondering if water weighs the same when it is frozen and then melted again.  Our conclusion, after we froze the water it weighed the same. The students are learning so much about physical changes and that matter is the same weight after we change it.

Carlos presented on oral repost to Mrs. Andrews’s class on Friday.  He has been learning about Martin Luther King Jr. during his time working with Mrs. Allen.  He was nervous, but did a great job. He did a great job writing his report in English as well.  Carlos has only been learning English for about a year, and is doing amazing. Good job not giving up when it is hard Carlos!  We are excited to have Carlos learn with us.
