Family Movie Night

They made Lorax wraps for milk cartons then planted marigold seeds. There were pictures to color and words games for all ages.

Skype With An Author

Thursday, Feb 28th, the third and fourth grade were part of a worldwide Skype with an Author. Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver answered questions and discussed their work together. Winkler, who is dyslexic and had learning problems all his life; succeeded as an actor, producer, and now author. Some of you may remember him as the Fonz on the television series “Happy Days”.

Winkler and Oliver are authors of the Hank Zipzer series. Hank is a smart, funny, intelligent boy who has learning challenges. The stories are about his everyday adventures and misadventures. An interesting note: The font used in the books is called Dyslexia and was created by a typesetter who had children with dyslexia. It is easier to read than the usual font used in most books.

First Grade Matter Experiment

We are conducting an experiment this afternoon. We observed water in a cup. Then we added a “mystery powder” to our cup and observed how the properties changed. After we added our mystery powder we put our cups in the refrigerator and are (im)patiently waiting to see if/how our matter will change!  What do you think will happen?

Nebraska Blue Books

Those 4th graders are at it again!  The fourth graders put together their own Nebraska Blue Books. Their books included symbols of the state, the flag, and a familiar sight or two. Check them out you may learn something new.

Physical Properties

4th grade has been very busy working on physical properties. A fun way to get some practice was to take everyday items and list the physical properties on each item. We have also been using a balance scale and working with partners. Lots of learning is going on! On a side note, quiz your children about math. We have been working on fractions, decimals, and percents. Some math and science marvels in the 4th grade!
