The idea of this project came from The Washington Post's Peep Diorama contest that ran for 10 years. Students were challenged to come up with a theme for their peep, and instead of a diorama come up with a Pinterest type page for a collective "Peepterest" board. What creative and artistic students we have! Each pin captures the individual interests and personalities of the students.
This afternoon our class worked outside in the front garden beds. The students were so quick to clear out the old to make way for the new growth coming in, that we even had time to work a bit in the rain garden habitat!
To celebrate St. Partrick's Day, students were challenged to create Leprechaun Traps out of their LEGO Learn2Learn kits. Here are a few of their creations.
Tonight was Community Night and what a fun and busy night it was! Nearly all of the class' families helped their 2nd grader paint a stepping stone to be put in the school's rain garden habitat. Thanks to all for turning out and supporting us in this school wide event.
Tomorrow Mrs. Huneycutt will be leading a GoldeiBlox session at Girls Geek Day (Cale Elementary 9-12). To get ready, the class explored the GoldieBlox kits we store for the school in our room during STEM time. By far the zipline is still the favorite.
Today was the Grade 2-3 patriotic music performance. The students really did a fine job at both daytime and evening performances, and the display of their US symbols looked fabulous!
