Music Madness

Over the last two weeks, the girls have been creating instruments during science time. This week the students were to create a musical instrument (at home) where two instruments were to be attached and could be played simultaneously. In the picture to the left, you can see each girl holding her instrument, if you would like to hear Megan and Larke play their instruments check out the Dojo video. If you would like to see and hear the girls play Hot Cross Buns LIVE, please join us on Monday morning (4/21/16) at 8:00.

Protagonists and Antagonists

Throughout this unit we have been reading and learning about protagonists and antagonists. This week the girls were given forty-five minutes to read five fairy tales and organize the characters into the two categories. What fun they had reading fairy tales!!

Once the girls had read all five fairy tales, they had to create a wanted posted for one of the antagonists. See the pictures below of the girls reading and their posters.
