Once again we thank you for your support in all of our celebrations! If you already sent in your plastic eggs or candy for the egg hunt on Friday, we thank you! If you can't help at this time, that's fine too. We simply ask that you send your candy/toys or plastic eggs in no later than Wednesday afternoon so that there is enough time to buy anything else and assemble the eggs for the hunt on Friday.
As mentioned in the weekly newsletter, you can also help by signing up on the classroom door to send in goodies for our celebration. If you would like to help out on Friday, April 2nd, you are more than welcome to come help hide eggs between 11:40 and 12:00 or come at 12:15 for the hunt followed by a fun celebration when we will dye eggs, make bunny hats, sing songs and eat our goodies! Thank you again for your support :-)
We realized as we watched the first video that one of our friends was absent and one's video clip was missing, so I edited the video and here it is, including the winning name choice!
As you know from the creepy crawly worm sent home last Wednesday, we had a fantastic time learning about worms and their role in helping keep soil healthy for plants. Our students were able to look under a microscope and see pictures of various parts of the worm, shine a light on the worm and observe it's behavior changes, and learn some fun big words like "setae," the worm's way of moving.
All in all, the presentation was a huge hit. Please check back for a photo gallery of our fun Mad Science demonstration! We will be studying living things, plants and animals, over the next month, adding both a cricket and a goldfish to our classroom and making scientific hypotheses about how these creatures can thrive in our environment!
