Making Dirt :}

In science this week, we discussed the importance of good soil and then made our own dirt. We used a combination of milk chocolate and dark chocolate pudding for the clay soil mix we have in Virginia, added humus (oreos), and worms (gummies) for aeration. We then read aloud the book Diary of a Worm and wrote a story about what they would do if they were a worm! Science this week was fun and yummy too!

It’s time to buy school supplies?!

We know it’s only April, but our online school supply store is open for business! You can pre-order next year’s supplies right now for 2016/17. All you have to do is visit www.1stDaySchoolSupplies.com. 1st Day School Supplies kits are the exact school supplies your teachers requested and are approved by the school. It is more cost effective than Amazon and supplies are delivered directly to your child’s classroom! Buying your child’s school supplies online will also help raise money to provide school supply kits for students who are unable to purchase them. Deadline is June 30th!

GLOW RUN
