COMMUNICATIONS with Ms. Newell:
1/2, 3/4, and 5/6 all did a Declaration of Independence reader’s theatre script. There were some challenging words in it, but all of them did great and we learned a little history, too.
K/1 We did follow the leader charades and all the kids got the chance to perform on stage alone. I think they’re all getting a lot more comfortable on stage and with acting!
SCIENCE with Mrs. Cecil:
We discovered through a process called “selection” most fruits and vegetables today look nothing like they did hundreds of years ago. Scientists can enhance the characteristics of plants from generation to generation. We discussed how types of fruits/vegetables come in many varieties and by looking inside them, at their leaves and flowers they produce many fruits/vegetables we thought we different types are actually varieties of the same kind. Ex—squash, zucchini and pumpkin. We laughed about making a “squa-cchin-kin pie” next Thanksgiving!
-We are so excited about spring and the gifts this season brings! We are collecting flowers and bugs (alive or not!) for a school collection. Bring in samples to add to our collection.
-Also, students can bring in samples of interesting fruits/vegetables/plants anytime.
Special thanks to k/1 Emma! Everyone loved the fresh strawberries! We had a great time “digesting” the seeds as we ate them!

*1/2 Students guessed the answer to food riddles in Spanish and completed searching for food in a wordsearch, then wrote the english meaning for each food word.
