Learning about motion and force while building ramps

During science, we have been learning how our hand (force) can cause a ball to roll (motion) while using a ramp (incline) to make the ball to go faster.  Our scientific minds have been hard at work this week!

Celebrating St. Patrick's day!

We were sure seeing a lot of green today celebrating St. Patrick's Day and celebrating our "incredible" reading month!  We had so much fun looking for leprechauns, one even brought us gold coins this morning!!!
Our classroom enjoyed reading buddy time upstairs with Mrs. Murphy's class!

Meeting baby chicks!

Thank you to Hills bank for bringing in baby chicks for us to see.  We learned all about the life cycle of a chicken and had a chance to see and ask questions about the baby chicks.  What a great experience!!!

Who helps in the garden?

Ms. Holz helped us put on a play about what animals help keep a garden growing.  We each got to have a part in the play and find out who are the insect or animal helpers, and who might be the animal or insect destroyers that hurt the garden.
