Winter Holiday Break
These next 2 weeks are a wonderful time to catch up on visiting family, reading wonderful books and strengthening multiplication and division facts! Warm wishes for a relaxing and restful time together with family and friends over the upcoming break!
This photo was taken from a special telescope with a protective lens when Mr. Metcalf came to visit us. The dark spots are equivalent to the size of earth! We tried to estimate just how many "earths" could fit into the size of the sun- mind blowing!
Using our special solar glasses
It took us a minute for our eyes to adjust, but then.....
There it is!!
Wow! So amazing to be able to view the sun with these special glasses! Mr. Metcalf was very clear to explain to us that we do not look at the sun unless we have these special glasses on.
Look for strip of paper coming home Thursday:)
Colonial Williamsburg- DFES style
"I learned that even though I was frustrated, not to give up."
"I learned that I can work well with other people!"
"I learned that I can get ideas from watching how others are building their colonial gingerbread houses."
" We all learned that you need to put your finger in ice when you burn it on the glue gun multiple times" thank you Mrs. Hill for that life lesson!
"I learned that I'm pretty good at building- constructing things!"
I am so very encouraged not just by the creativity of the children, but by the way that they persevered, especially when they were covered in frosting and the building kept falling....NO ONE gave up!!! That to me is worth a huge celebration!!!
Here are the milliners' and the cobblers' shop. Notice the Burgess' elaborate home (his wife is standing out front in her fancy attire).
The Printers Shop
These ladies constructed a printing press shop. They even planted indigo so they'd have blue dye!
A view down the main street
What a tasty way to experience colonial Williamsburg:)
