    What a snowy and festive day today. Below is the beautiful view from our window. This week, kids had the opportunity to learn about St. Lucia's Day and winter solstice. They made hats and crowns, as well as watercolor paintings of a winter scene. 

    Have a joyful and fun break!

    Today the 1-2 classes started a new science unit on light and sound. Ms. Ellis will teach about sound and Ms. Richardson will teach about light. We are so excited to make new discoveries with the students.

     

    Stained Glass Art

    Today we learned about the history of glass. We talked about windows, natural light and artificial light. We learned new vocbulary words: tansparent, translucent and opaque and we created our own "stained glass" pieces.


    This afternoon we wrapped up our unit on small moments by sharing our writing with our partners. We read, listened and offered feedback.

    Our most recent Monarch. She was strong and flew away quickly. She spent some time drying her wings on one of our plants before departing.
