Monday Highlights/Homework 1/15

Science—We discussed types of plants that don’t make their own food, they eat our food or catch their own food! We watched a video of plants catching their food and making “fly soup.” We discussed how special plants like molds and fungi are helpful to us and our environment. We are observing how mold grows on orange peels and scraps. We are also making raisins. Some students chose to take their peels and grapes home to observe the changes each day so please find them in their backpacks before next week! Homework—bring in any moldy foods you want to show the class, making sure it’s sealed of course!

Communications – All classes practiced the play. An email about the performance day is forthcoming. -Ms. Newell

Art– We missed Mrs. L but Mrs. Stewart did a fantastic job honoring Martin Luther King Jr. in all Art classes! Students Zentangled as they reflected upon and learned about why we commemorate MLK day. Check folders for their work.

Martial Arts – Monday we were able to compare recent push up and crunch testing to the numbers from the beginning of the year. We were very happy about some of the results of the students that have been practicing their daily homework assignments.We quickly got into learning how to write 1-10 Japanese. Before each symbol could be revealed, we did that number of a particular exercise. So, before they could see what number 1 was in Japanese, they did 1 burpee. Then to see what number 2 in Japanese would be, they did 2 lunge hops. We had a different exercise for all 10 numbers. The kids seemed to love it. The photo is of one of the classes representing the first 4 exercises we performed for the first 4 numbers. (I sure had sweat running down my nose after each class).
