Wacky Wednesday

The rain didn’t dampen our spirits yesterday, for the last Wednesday of summer school.  The highlight of the day was making salt dough.  Students worked in groups to measure and mix the ingredients.  They loved getting messy, using only their hands to mix the dough.  After mixing and a little cleaning, the students were excited to CREATE.  Students made a variety of objects with their dough including snakes, snowmen, and cinnamon rolls.  Each student took a portion of the dough home.  Many of them planned to dry the dough and even paint it.   If you would like to make your own salt dough, it is very easy.  Here is the recipe they used: 2 cups flour 1 cup salt 1 cup warm water - They didn’t use quite that much.  Add water or a little more flour as needed.  The . . .

Terrific Tuesday Tangrams in Third-Grade

Third graders enjoyed a Terrific Tuesday earlier this week. They worked with tangrams to create boats and animals, like seals and cats.  Students also used the tangrams to make original creations.  Through all of this “play” they learned about the attributes of two dimensional shapes, and they stretched their brain muscles by visualizing how these shapes can be combined to form other figures.

Marvelous Monday in Third Grade

Yesterday was the last Monday of summer school, but that wasn’t the only reason that made for a “Marvelous Monday”.  First, Third-graders enjoyed popsicles courtesy of Joy and Jaelynn. We then visited Mr. Watt’s science classroom in the high school.  Mr. Watt demonstrated how a 3D printer works.  He also demonstrated the principal of inertia using a pencil, string, a cup of water, and a “cup holder”. He used the 3D printer to create the “cup holder”. We all took turns swinging the cup around WITHOUT spilling the water!  Thank you, Mr. Watt, for helping to make our Monday even more marvelous.  We look forward to more experiences with the 3D printer, and we are excited about the opportunities this provides to our students.

Hello? Anyone There?

In science last week, Fourth-grade students learned how sound travels. Through a video, the students learned about what makes sound and how it travels. Then they made a "telephone", wrote a hypothesis about what would happen when they went to use their telephone, and then tested their creations. To conclude the lesson, the students discussed the results and what could be done differently.
