In math class, we got a surprise letter from Ms. Oats, President of the Cheerios Cereal Company. Seems she needed our data collection/analyzing ability to figure out a marketing problem. Using this real life simulation problem was a fun way to use our newfound one-die probability skills.
The big news in the early elementary wing was the start of Spring EBs. Other special events included two field trips - one to the Scrap Box for both first/second grade classes where we learned more about recycling and participated in a robot making workshop, and one super secret mission to shop for a mother's day present. We also went to County Farm Park with August and Edison for a little field work, as they taught us about their important work with bird nests.
And, finally, a very special event happened on Thursday when author Amy Shrodes visited. Her book, Lost and Found Cat, is the true story of a cat that was was lost when a refugee family needed to flee Iraq.
Of course, "normal" stuff happened too - spelling lists, writing, math books, poetry, reading together, and science lessons. We just finished our must current read-aloud, The Talented Clementine.
