Stand for Kind

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 02/12/2020 - 10:58

Yesterday, we had a visit from Foreign Figures who played for our and talked about Stand for Kind.  They talked to us about just being a friend.  We need to care about the well being of our fellow students and how we treat each other.  They reminded us that kindness is cool.  We remember those who are kind to us.  So, be kind to others.  They reminded us that everyone is so different. Sometimes when we are mean to people, we don’t realize what it means to others when we are mean...or when we are nice. We should bring each other together. We can also choose kindness over everything else.

Chemical Changes

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 02/12/2020 - 10:52

Miss Bird’s class just finished their unit on matter.  We finished up with an experiment to grow salt crystals.  We mixed bluing, salt and ammonia together and poured it over charcoal.  We waited and what happened? If the chemicals were mixed correctly and thoroughly enough, salt crystals grew.  It was a fun way to end our unit on matter.

1000th Day of School

Submitted by susan.bird on Tue, 02/11/2020 - 10:02

Did you know that when a student is 110 days into fifth grade they celebrate 1000 days of school?  In kindergarten, students attend 170 days. In first, second, third and fourth grades, students attend 180 days of school.  So, we need 110 days in fifth grade to reach the 1000th day mark. We had some fun in fifth grade to celebrate the day. Mrs. Smith's class celebrated this milestone by writing about what we would do with $1 for every day we have been in school since we started kindergarten.  Miss White and Miss Bird did an escape room and we all enjoyed cookies.
