Mrs. Strauss Reads to Kindergarten as Cat In The Hat
What's Happening in Classrooms?
Mrs. Cyr's sixth-graders wrote an opinion piece about how they felt about sled dog racing. Each student chose a musher to follow after reading some short biographies and checking out the Iditarod website. Students will be tracking their chosen musher throughout the 1,049-mile race when it starts this Saturday in Anchorage, Alaska. They will check racing positions, times and graph daily checkpoints.
Fun stuff in music! The younger students, (PK-4) are working on song-stories. They are playing "Horton Hears a Who" using instruments in the percussion family. 6th Grade is hard at work on their Dr. Seuss raps. Mrs. Scala-Bolduc has seen some amazing engagement and creativity from students who are otherwise quiet in music class. It's been really wonderful to hear some of their compositions. We have some talented sound engineers!
Miss Kirby's class went to Robert's Farm this past week. Two of their rotations consisted of skiing and baking banana muffins. Miss Kirby's class has been studying fractions, exercise, nutrition, and physical/chemical changes. What a fun way to incorporate these skills.
Ms. Nicholas' class learned to cross-country ski at Robert's Farm recently. The students showed great perseverance, even when it was really hard. They helped each other up when they fell, gave advice to those struggling and cheered each other on. It was really nice to see them working together as a team.
Fun at Robert's Farm!
