Things are great in room 308!
Valentines Party--PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Valentines: We have 16 students in our class. Your child doesn't need to address their valentines, but they can do a great job of signing them. Signing a few a night will make this a more manageable task for them. Please let them do this themselves, they will love taking ownership of their own valentines! An ultra-fine Sharpie would be the perfect tool for this job!
Valentines boxes: This would be a great project for you and your child to do at home, together. Some guidelines for boxes: it should be be of a size that your child can manage on their own (very important if your child is a bus rider) and there needs to be an easy way to get the valentines *out* (I always suggest cutting an opening big enough for a ring pop!)
Sometimes things come up, so if you would prefer your child makes a valentines box at school let me know and we will have it ready for the party.

Engineering! Chemistry! Physics!
The m&m is for scale. They looked like ice but we discovered they weren't cold and didn't melt
They looked pretty interesting under a magnifying glass
The kids couldn't get enough
We also worked in our classroom using different materials
The class spent all week perfecting this one
And put some finishing design touches on their own
