Poetry Slam 2018

Last Friday, we held our poetry reading honoring Shel Silverstein.  Students had to memorize and recite a poem by the famous poet.  It was a huge success! Everyone did a wonderful job and I am so proud of all the hard work they put into their presentations.

Radishes

Written by Lucas and Ethan

Yesterday, we saw our radishes.  Today, we ate them.  They tasted so bad without the crackers and cheese.  We ate them with the crackers and cheese and they were heaven!

We planted them 2 weeks ago.  Wow!

We also planted carrots, lettuce, and spinach.  They are doing so good!

STEM Friday: Solar-Powered Ovens

After learning about heat energy, students practiced following step-by-step directions to build an solar-powered oven to investigate how we can use heat energy to cook food.

Students built ovens out of pizza boxes and set them outside to attract light and heat from the sun to “bake” s’mores and pizza.

Fun Planting Time

Written by Maya and Elise

My class is planting some things for the end of the school year so we can have a class party with our veggies.

We found a planting spot and we started to grow lettuce and spinach for our class.  We added the soil and lots of water in a sunny spot.  We will also plant carrots and radishes.

Most of the class planted seeds.  Lots of them!  We can’t wait for our veggies to grow!
