Spring Concert: Last week we had our spring concert on Thursday. The theme was cowboy country. 3rd and 4th grade sang old cowboy songs like "Home on the Range" and "Lonestar Trail." 4th graders also played recorder.
Flotsam: "Flotsam" is a book written by David Weisner and it is wordless. It is filled with pictures that tell a story. We looked at the pictures very carefully and thought about what the characters were saying. In a group we wrote a story to go with the pictures. They will soon be posted on the student project part of the website as a powerpoint.
The Mysteries of Harris Burdick: Another writing project that we did this week was looked at the book written by Chris Van Alsburg. We looked at the pictures and wrote a story to go with the picture. We are doing this writing project with kids from Iowa. We skyped with this class earlier this year and now are writing the stories using Google Docs.
Hat Day: Today we wore hats and donated $1 and the money will go to kids who have cancer. We raised over $450 schoolwide for the cause. Ms. Terwelp and Mrs. Foster are donating their hair to Locks for Love. Everyone is going to watch them get their hair cut.
