These “almost 2nd graders” had their last Jumpin’ Pizza Night last night!
There are so many bittersweet moments as we wind up the school year 🙂
On Friday, we had 2 special visitors in our classroom….Pip & Chip, a pair of baby California Quails!
We got to observe them….
and gently pet their tiny heads!
Did you know that one day Pip & Chip will grow plumes on top of their heads?
What a wonderful way to connect to our Social Studies standards about beautiful California!
On Friday, 5th Grade hosted a Reader’s Cafe for 1st and 2nd grades…and we LOVED every minute of it!
We were greeted at the door by our hostesses.
After being seated in the cafe, waitresses took our snack orders while chefs prepared our goodies.
Then, 5th graders read us books! They had even prepared comprehension questions for us so we could “talk books” together 🙂
THANK YOU 5th grade for the fabulous READING experience!!
We have been observing the amazing miracle of metamorphosis for over 2 weeks now.
It was with mixed emotions that we said goodbye to our beautiful Painted Lady butterflies on Wednesday. Our faces display the absolute wonder and joy of God’s incredible creation!
Stay wonder-filled! 🙂
Today we had a REAL Engineer (who’s also one of our Dads:) come to first grade to teach us all about engineering!
He read us this book, from his childhood, that inspired him to become an aeronautical engineer.
He taught us sooo many things about what Engineers do!
He even brought some airplane seats that he helped design….called a “triple”.
Then, we got to try out the triples!!
Finally, Mr. McCarthy encouraged us to keep learning about STEM so that we too could one day be engineers!!
