Tuesday, April 25th of Science Week focused on Earth and Space. Some classes learned about the effects of erosion and different planets. Kindergarten and first grade studied the phases of the moon using Oreos! One second grade class created layers of soil using pudding, cake, whip cream, and gummy worms! According to one source, who wishes to remain anonymous, “dirt tastes good.” Finally, our sixth graders who are preparing to leave our campus in a month, created their own planets that could sustain life. We’re hoping our sixth graders are merely graduating from our campus, not the galaxy.
Kindergarteners in Mrs. Mingle’s class used “magic” and some watercolor paint to practice their sight words. The students had so much fun while learning!

This week, Mrs. Lee’s 2nd grade classroom has been creating “Japan” in their classroom. Students have designed their own fans, created ancient scrolls and haikus! Come visit Japan on Thursday, 1/26 from 5:30-7:30pm!
Today in science we learned about the anatomy of a spider. The class got to meet Mrs. Kimmi’s friendly ‘pet spider’ named Mr. Fluffy. The students had the opportunity to reach into the box to pet Mr. Fluffy the ‘spider’, if they wanted. Mrs. Kimmi then took the spider out and had the kids name all the parts of the spider (abdomen, head, feelers, legs, eyes, spinnerets). Their reactions were priceless.
