What are we learning?
Kindergarten-1st Grade: We counted to 100!! Students brought in 100 items from home! And showed off there amazing counting skills and cool items they collected from home.
2nd Grade: Second graders are learning all about the body systems this year! We learned how to calculate heart rate in BPM and conducted a series of timed events starting with walking and escalating to full jumping jacks for two whole minutes! They had a blast doing this hands on activity! We also learned about the anatomy of the cardiovascular system. Looking at anatomy is always a great testament to how amazing and beautiful God’s power and creativity are! Our class scored 110% on our science test! Way to go!
5th Grade: Students are learning all about weight and capacity! Does the amount of capacity change the weight? We guessed weights then compared sizes and weighed items with scales.
Our Trip to Spain!
Nosotros viaje a España! This week we took a trip to Spain! We learned so much about the Hispanic culture! From the things they wear and eat, to the things they sing and do! We got to eat ‘pan dulce’ (sweet bread) and create a character ready and dressed to go to Spain! We also made a terribly big mess! But a creative mess is better than tidy idleness!
