Thanks to all of our parent volunteers, our first field trip to the Science Center was a success. The students had a wonderful time and came back to school filled with new ideas!
In science this week the students wanted to add bubbles to the sensory table. We first tried to make bubbles out of dawn and water, but sadly this did not work. The students came up with their hypotheses and the went back to work. We researched many different ways to make bubble solution and could not decide which would be the best, so we picked four to test. The students split into groups and followed the recipes, some containing dawn and corn syrup and some even containing sugar. After the solutions were made we then moved into the testing phase. After testing, we voted on the best solution to use. The students decided to combine all of the solutions to make a their own solution. We have been collecting household objects to add to our sensory table. Please feel free to send in any unusual object for blowing bubbles.
In honor of the first day of fall, on September 22nd, for Writers Workshop we went out to visit our outdoor classroom. The students made observations of the changes that are happening. They collected pieces of nature to document what they have seen. we will be creating a book about the seasonal changes.

Lastly, on Wednesdays we have Library please make sure your child brings their library book back to school Wednesday morning. They will not be allowed to check out another one unless the previous one has been returned.
