    Today we worked out in the garden to get it ready for a delivery of compost. We weeded and removed the old plastic. We also made many observations and saw lots of creatures hiding out.

    Today we reviewed what we know about life cycles and the seasons. We have been talking about getting our garden ready to plant. Kids worked the soil and planted a seed of their choice for our class garden.

  • Maple sugaring!

    Posted by Jaclyn Richardson on 3/30/2018

    Today our amazing Nature teachers taught us all about another cycle: maple sugaring. We learned how to identify a maple tree, we tapped a tree and we had the opportunity to sample both sap and different kinds of syrup. The kids were able to identify the fake syrup after the taste testing. Yum!

  • Creating and coding with Legos

    Posted by Jaclyn Richardson on 3/29/2018

    Yesterday and today we had opportunity to explore and discover with WeDo software and build creations using Legos. Kids discovered how they could make different parts move in different ways by using the software to send their Lego bricks commands. Not only were all of the kids excited and engaged, they practiced problem solving, perseverance and working together in addition to many S.T.E.M. skills. We are all looking forward to continuing this work in the next couple of weeks.

  • An Introduction to Lego Robotics

    Posted by Jaclyn Richardson on 3/9/2018

    This week we were lucky to have two guest teachers share some information with us about their experiences with Lego Robotics. We discussed and participated in an activity which highlighted the importance of using precise language and sequencing. Making a PB&J sandwich is not as easy as you think! We connected this thinking to coding and creating. Kids were really excited when they thought about having the opportunity to do this on their own.
