We had a busy full week of school this time. Students were working hard with new materials in math and art and learning more about different life forms and characteristics in science.
We had a great time on our field trip on Tuesday. A very special thanks to the parents who volunteered to drive to see the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Other highlights this week were geometry lessons where students learned the names of different types of lines with Ms. Mary and making bread with wheat that students ground over the past couple of weeks.
We also had a fun lesson learning about the difference between nouns and verbs with Mr. Ben. The symbols we use to represent nouns is a black pyramid that is solid and doesn't really move and the symbol we use for verbs is a red sphere that always moves and shows the movement and energy in those type of words.
Remember that there is no school next Friday for a teacher in-service day, so spelling tests will be on Thursday. Also, Harvest Fest will be on Saturday and it will be a whole lot of fun. We hope everyone has had a moment to meet our new assistant, Ms. Ali who started this week and has been a great addition to our classroom community.
Mr. Ben, Ms. Mary and Mr. Robin
