The Big Bad Wolf Strikes Again!

Submitted by susan.bird on Thu, 10/11/2018 - 11:31

What a fun day in first grade! We participated in a STEM project where we had to build houses for the 3 little pigs. All we could use were dots and toothpicks to make our houses. Once our houses were built the Big Bad Wolf tried to blow them down! Some of our houses fell down the first time, but after we improved them they all stayed up! We had so much fun planning, building, experimenting, improving, and presenting our plans. The pigs are safe from the Big Bad Wolf now!

Oh the Tying We Will Do!

Submitted by susan.bird on Thu, 10/11/2018 - 08:39

Our fifth grade classes headed down to the Kindergarten hall with teaching in mind. Each fifth grader assisted one Kindergarten student in learning and practicing the Art of tying shoes. The Kindergarten students had a splendid time learning from their older peers and were eager to show them they were up to the task. The fifth grade students jumped in with both feet and began the tying show down. What a wonderful way to learn and grow together.

Three Little Pigs STEM Project

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 10/10/2018 - 08:10

This week we did a STEM activity in the first grade. After reading "The Three Little Pigs" we built homes for our piglets using only "dot" candy and toothpicks. We then tested them against the huff and puff of the wolf! (blow dryer). First, they made a plan of how to build, then we tested and went back to the drawing board to make our designs even stronger. Finally, we built once more! ALL their houses withstood the blow dryer by the end! Woo hoo!

Art with Mrs. Palmer

Submitted by susan.bird on Tue, 10/09/2018 - 15:19

Mrs. Ramos' is class is learning about comparing and contrasting with our reading.  So, Mrs. Palmer (our GAINS visual art specialist) taught us how to compare and contrast warm and cool colors.   The students had a great time, and their own art really helped solidify the concept.

Haunted House Projects

Submitted by susan.bird on Thu, 10/04/2018 - 11:59

This is a huge project about following detailed verbal directions. The houses start out as paper, are copied onto pieces of card stock, cut out, and then assembled in class. Our haunted house village this year was called Haunted Hills. Then we (Mrs. Bird and myself) spray paint them out behind the school during planning time. After they dry, we have a class party where we decorate them--in record time--while listening to Halloween music.

Second Grade Learns Colors

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 10/03/2018 - 11:43

Second grade students have been learning about colors.  They know that the primary colors are red, yellow, and blue.  They know that you can mix the primary colors and make secondary colors. The secondary colors are orange, green, and purple.  In class all students made a Primary Colors Quilt as well as mixing Play-Doh to make a secondary color wheel. Probably the most fun was learning how to play a Primary Color song and the "C" scale on Glockenspiels.  Come check out our 2nd grade hall to see their artwork.
