Ask your child about the great time we had at the Discovery Museum. We learned about Polygons, had some fun free exploring their exhibits and then also learned about the life cycle of beetles. Every student brought home a mealworm in the larvae stage. Their habitat has food and water (the potato slice), air (the hole on the lid of the cup), and shelter (the oatmeal makes a good, cool hiding home). Enjoy your worm. If you'd like to set it free, or if it dies, you can put it in some soil in your garden to live out its little life or decompose.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) happens in first grade too! These students are accessing the Learning Links via www.mrsberelson.us using our class's two iPad Minis, my personal iPad, one of our student's dad's iPodTouch, another student's Samsung Galaxy, and another's dad's iPad.
We had a packed week! Is April the new May?
It seemed like there was something going on everyday after school this week. The kids performed beautifully at both the ELAC dance presentation on Monday night and at the Thursday night music show.
We really do have 'High Hopes", don't we? Did anyone take any video or photos they'd like to share with us?
I hope our children have an opportunity for some down time and some outdoor play this weekend. It's gorgeous and it's EARTH DAY WEEKEND.
I invite you all to come join me at Squaw Valley today (Saturday 4/20) for their Earth Day Celebration My daughter Rebecca, will be emceeing the Truckee High School Envirolution Club's Trashion Show at 2:15. It will be great.
On Tuesday April 30, we'll be traveling with Mrs. Lynn's first grade class (in our parent volunteers' cars) to the Discovery Museum in Reno Nevada. Please sign and return the permission slip with $5.00. They'll be coming home in this week's Friday Folder. Parent drivers please indicate if you are available to drive and chaperone on this science field trip.
