• Making Playdoh (mixing states of matter)

    Posted by Krystina Mendoza at 5/22/2015
    We mixed different states of matter to make our own playdoh!  So much fun!  Here's the recipe if you want to try it at home:  2 cups of flour, 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon of oil, 2 drops of food coloring.  Mix and Knead ingredients.  If the dough is too sticky, add more flour.  We had to add a lot of extra flour!

    These first graders were hard at work typing up their opinion on The Best Pet.  This is their first time publishing a writing piece on the laptops.  So exciting!

    Earth Day
    We celebrated Earth Day by making our own Earth Person!  We talked about ways to help the Earth:  don't take long showers, help pick up trash, recycle, turn off the water when you are not using it and so much more.  We are going to help the Earth every day!

    We learned more about weather tools and tested the temperature, the wind and saw how clouds are formed.  After, we visited the science exhibit and had fun trying out some cool gadgets.

  • Mindfulness

    Posted by Krystina Mendoza at 4/16/2015
    We are practicing 2 minutes of Mindfulness half way through our day.  We are working on breathing deeply and thinking of a place that makes us happy.  We relax and do some yoga so we are mindful for the rest of class.

    Water cycle
    We learned about the water cycle: evaporation, condensation, precipitation and accumulation (run-off).  We had to label parts of the water cycle and then our middle school buddies helped us with our water cycle experiment.

    St. Patrick's Day
    Happy St. Patrick's Day from first grade.  We were very excited to have Mr. L (Mr. Leprechaun) visit us today.  This year, he decorated the classroom and let us little treats throughout the day.  He also made us go on a scavenger hunt around the school for his gold!  He was so nice to share some of his gold with us.

    imagination 1 Imagination 2
    3rd grade helped us use our imagination to create a detailed picture in our minds.  Then, we created our own picture using shapes because we are learning geometry in our classes!
