The 100th Day of School

Our class decided to share ideas about what we could do to celebrate the 100th Day of School.  Below is our Padlet board with all of our ideas.

On Wednesday, we will find out which ideas were chosen. We can't wait until it's the 100th day of school!

Science Alive!

Last week, one of our favorite programs came to our school.  It's called Science Alive.  Science Alive brings REAL animals into our classrooms to experience them up close and personal.  Yes, that's right!  We get to see, feel, and sometimes hold real animals as the biologist shares all kinds of information about them.  Each year our PTA brings this program to our school.  Each year they come with a new group of animals.  This year we had a two snakes, one of which was a python, a chinchilla, a toad and a skunk (without the gland that creates the bad smell of course).  Take a look at some of the pictures.  It was a lot of fun and one of our favorite in-school programs.

We LOVE Science Alive!  What fun programs do you have at your school?  Have you ever touched one of these animals before?  Please leave us a comment and let us know what you think.

Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King

This year, we learned a lot about Dr. Martin Luther King. We read books about his life and we watched videos to learn about all the important things that he did to help our world become a better place. In the United States we celebrate his birthday on January 20th, which is Martin Luther King Day. One of the things we did to celebrate the day was to share our dreams for the future. Here are some of the dreams we shared: I can Dream Like Dr. king. My dream is... "No more smoking because it is not healthy." "To have no hungry children any where." "No more drunk drivers."
This is a song we sang all week about Dr. Martin Luther King. We sang it every morning during our morning meeting.
