Mad Science!

Science lab has started!  We put on our (imaginary) white coats, gloves, goggles, and science boots and received our science notebooks.


For our first lab, we learned about yucky blucky germs and how to keep our bodies healthy!  We tested out our germs and used hand sanitizer and warm soap and water to see which cleaned our germs best.  We found warm water and soap does a better job.  Ask your child about our germs science lab.


We have also been preparing for our trip to the orchard. We dissected an apple and learned all of its parts.  We used our 5 senses to record our findings from our taste testing.  We tried: Fuji, Red Delicious, Braeburn, and Gingergold.  Ask your child which ones they enjoyed.

Welcome to First Grade!

First grade has started off really nicely!  I want to say a special thank you to Elana, Cory, and Jennie W. for helping with the class while I was taking a few extra weeks with my boys.

First grade has had lots of guided discovery and are learning how to play together, learn together, and how to care for the tools and each other. On Fridays, Cory taught us how to play chess and the kids are great chess players!

Check out some of our pictures from our guided discovery and chess club!
