We had such a scientifically magnificent time at our STEM Christmas party with our book buddies! What could be a better celebration than building your own Christmas tree or trying a recipe for homemade bouncy balls? Mrs. Fogg finished an animoto today and shared it with us. We are so thankful for the joy of learning together. Enjoy.
Two more Forty Book Challenge conquerors! The reading has been grand this year!
Every Christmas we choose a serving project to work on as a class. This year we are making Blessing Bags for the Haven, full of items that might help a person who is homeless. Mrs. Shedd is helping each student to use their STEM skills to sew two neck warmers for our Blessing Bags.
Have you heard the news? This class of amazingly motivated writers has joined NaNoWriMo!
What is NaNoWriMo? National Novel Writing Month “happens every November! It’s a fun, seat-of-your-pants writing event where the challenge is to draft an entire novel in just 30 days. For one month, you get to lock away your inner editor, let your imagination take over, and just create!”
Indeed, creativity is swirling wildly through the air as dragons, best friends, strange creatures, robots, space aliens, horses, little brothers, unexpected surprises, worldwide travels, and much more are the topics of many writing discussions. Plot! Dialogue! Sentence variety! Character development!
Join in the fun. Ask our bloggers about their novels, volunteer to be a NaNoWriMo typist for these young authors who are not yet keyboardists, or maybe even try NaNoWriMo yourself! Unleash the writer within!
Tricky Native American legends were in the spotlight today during START. Autumn was able to share a bit of her own heritage for us to enjoy, and each group interpreted their tale through art. We started our Chinese storytelling masks, and here is a photo of the first bit of work on them. Stay tuned . . .
Our room is exploding with books! We are reading hungrily, sharing books with each other, creating book projects, and much more! Our first amazing reader passed 40 in her reading this week . . . . and she’s just getting warmed up.
