Read Across America begins next week! The children are very excited about this and can't wait to get started. All of the information about this fun week is coming home today with your child. We will be collecting canned and boxed food for the Mid Ohio Food Bank. This will be a friendly competition next week to earn icons. In order to earn certain icons each day, we have to have at least 75% participation. We figured out that that would be about 17 people each day participating.
Related Arts next week: Monday - P.E. Tuesday - Art Wednesday - Music Thursday - Library Friday - P.E.
These boys are crunching ice in a bag. This is a matter experiment. We had to find our own idea to melt the ice first. We couldn't put them next to lamps or stuff that is plugged into the wall. If your bag leaked, you were disqualified:). Whoever got their bag of ice melted won.
These girls are using the blanket on the reading bench to melt the ice.
They were hugging to melt the ice because it was warm. These boys got disqualified because the bag got a leak:).
Some kids put their bag of ice up to the window to melt it by the sun.
In P.E. we got three 5's in a row for trying hard, running for ten minutes without stopping, giving compliments, and no reminders. We voted for what kind of party we wanted because we earned it for getting three 5's in a row and the most votes were for an electronic/crafting party because some people don't want to rot their brains ( I love this!!!) We may also have cookies that we bake. I have decided that we will do this next Thursday. Please talk with your child about your expectations for taking care of this electronic device while at school. We cannot be responsible for items that are broken and such. If your child wants to bring in a crafting item such as Rainbow Looms, stickers, duct tape, etc. please feel free to send them in on this day.
