The new year has been off to a great start in 3/4. We’ve embraced the snowy weather by adding sledding to our outdoor time on the back playground. We learned how to make our own bouncy balls using borax, glue and water. We also experimented making our own “snow” out of baking powder and water, even though there was plenty of it outside!
Some members of our class have been working with Zoe on a shaddow puppet play. They’ve been working hard every tuesday for the past two months to write scripts, create original shaddow puppets, and practice their lines. We can’t wait to see the final product at their upcoming performance!
As we head into February, we are looking forward to completing more student goals, many of which combine science and cooking. After a successful homemade ice cream experiment, we are going to try a few more cooking projects, including rock candy and baking a layer cake.
*Please send a helmet to school if your child plans on sledding
*School vacation is February 15-19
