On Friday, all the first-grade classes participated in a science experiment. Before beginning the experiment, each student from Mrs. Saunders class had to write a prediction in their writer's notebook as to what he or she thought would happen. After the experiment was completed, the class discussed and shared their predictions.
For the experiment, each student had a capsule and they dropped it into the cup of water. When the capsule dissolved, a sponge creature appeared. Each class had a different set of animals. Mrs. Saunders' class had Ocean animals to match the theme of her classroom.
Fourth grade did daily team building activities for the first week of school. Students had 18 minutes, 1yd of string, 1 yd of tape, 20 sticks of spaghetti, and 1 large marshmallow. The goal was to build the tallest freestanding tower.
The third-grade teachers finished the week by pulling all the third-grade students together for two large team building activities. In the first exercise students stood on sheets that they pretended were magic carpets that were taking them on an adventure. The objective of the activity was to turn the sheets over without stepping off the sheets. It was amazing to see how well they worked together.
The students also had a chance to pretend to be first-mates on a large ship. They had to work together to follow orders and practice their listening skills.
