BETHKE BISON BULLETIN
January 22, 2017
Bison Time Begins & Students Need These Items!
Our students and teachers were so excited to begin Bison Time on Friday! The hallways were filled with energy and engagement as students worked to decide what they would work on for the next 7 weeks. Ask your student about what they are working on.
We will be asking for donations each week, as students will request what materials they will need for each week's Bison Time. We appreciate our PTA for providing most of our supplies, but we'll be asking for other things from week to week.
This week, our students have requested:
Empty boxes (cereal/Klennex)
Toilet paper and paper towel cardboard tubes
Old picture frames--all sizes
Large drop cloths
Large cardboard boxes
Match Box Cars
Fabric Pieces-1 foot or longer
sequins, glitter, beads
Bethke's Got Talent Cluster
These 3-5 graders were researching talent competitions.
The Fabric Cluster started with brainstorming ideas of things they wanted to make.
The Construction Cluster
These students watched a you-tube video on how to make a paper sculpture after they decided they wanted to make a bison.
Kinder E-Time- Robots
This group of kinder kiddos used cool-temp glue guns and recycled materials to make robots!
