Our big event this week was, of course, the planting of our beautiful rain garden. What a joy to finally put in all the lovely plants that will help clean and filter the storm water before it goes on to the river.
|Here's our friend Catie teaching us about the plants that will go into the ground.|
We also did some great science activities, both in the classroom, and at County Farm Park. In the classroom, we used the scientific method to do some tasty exploration surrounding popcorn, and will do an I-Spy nature hunt at the park on Friday. Math class was squealing with fun probability games of Pig - both the one and two dice versions.
We are reading Julian's Glorious Summer this week - a shorter chapter book about one of our favorite characters - Julian, from The Stories Julian Tells. We are reading lots of stories about summertime adventures now. I hope to start a new one soon - and be able to finish it by the end of the year. This next one is called Thimble Summer.
Students worked on their final batch on memory pages for the year. Their memory books will be going home next week, along with lots of other things - get ready! Children are excitedly getting ready for their Latin play next week, on Thursday.
