We had another busy week. In fact, we were so busy today, we didn’t even get to take our spelling tests! This morning we had an assembly. A trio of amazing brass musicians from the Vermont Symphony Orchestra came and played us some dramatic songs. We continued to experiment and talk about static electricity, we read books and went to the computer lab to write about our field trip from yesterday.
Speaking of our field trip… what a great day. We got up close and personal with chickens, lambs, sheep, and donkeys. We learned how the wool on a sheep’s back can end up as a pair of mittens or a sweater. See if your child can tell you more about the following steps: shearing, washing, drying, carding, spinning, dying, and knitting. Check out the pictures from our day.
On Wednesday we also had a visit from team USA’s National Women’s Hockey Team. They were an inspiring group of ladies that spoke our students about the importance of hard work and dedication. It was quite an honor to have them come to our school and it was nice for our kiddos to hear these important messages from folks that are at the top of their game! Check out the Wordle we created with some of the messages we heard from these dedicated athletes:
