We read Rhoda's Rock Hunt by local writer Molly Beth Griffin. This is a wonderful book about collecting rocks, family, time together, perseverance, and sacrifice. When we finished the book we set out some of the rocks in our room to build a cairn.
The zip line challenge came to an exciting close on Friday. Students were offered various random materials to create a new object that could travel down the zip line. We quickly discovered that some objects were too light and others were too heavy.
It is time for our new self portraits. This month students used crayons to draw a picture and then used water colors to add details over the crayon images.
