This week, the ECO (Ecology in Classrooms and Outdoors) ladies came to talk to us about the rock cycle. After learning about how forces inside the earth change and form rocks, we focused on igneous specimens. Using a classification tree, we determined the names of 6 common igneous rocks.
We began a unit on economics this week. We learned the difference between wants and needs, making lists and posters to distinguish the two. We also learned about how some people’s job provide goods, while others provide services.
Perhaps your child has come home with seemingly random (weird) items in their backpack. We have started “Giveaway Wednesdays.” This is the time of year when the teachers start spring cleaning. Miscellaneous art supplies, books and doo-dads are set out once a week. We draw names out of a bucket and kids can decide if they want to take any of the treasures home.
We have turned in our final count for Sternwheeler chaperones (and YES, we have Friday school that week). The chaperones will be:
Ms. Potts Ms, Kaufhold Ms. McCoy Ms. Becker
Ms. Detter Mr. Gleason Ms. Hosler Ms. Brocato
Ms. Price Ms. Teseniar Justin’s grandma Mr. Moseley
Ms. Kneeland Aparna Ms. Kinnear Ms. Buresh
Ms. Brown Ms. Irving Grandma Toni Ms. Carter
Ms. Dewey Huskey (2) Jolene Johnson Johnson (2)
Ms. Pailthorp Mr. Wilson
Please let us know if we’ve messed up on this list!
