On April 11th Second Grade tested our money counting skills. The real world experience field trip to Safeway and the park was phenomenal!! Thank you to all who came with us.
Wow! Time flies when you are having fun learning. Below you will find some things we have been doing and some things that will be coming up.
Daily we are building our sequencing skills (by writing summaries), developing opinion pieces and starting expository paragraphs, and working on the foundation for multiplication/division and graphing. Whew!
Our trout eggs are here! This brief paragraph below was in the UPE Newsletter- Super exciting, you are welcome to come and see them anytime. I know your child would love to take you !
Trout in the Classroom
Something fishy is definitely going on in the Mountain Academy for Arts and Sciences! Specifically, baby trout. Our trout eggs have arrived and, for the whole school, the gestation and growth of the beautiful little creatures is the talk of the elementary town. Sixth and Second graders have prepared the tank to required specification and are leading this effort to raise these tiny fish into ones that can be certified for release into local streams and waterways. Along the way, children across the school will have the opportunity to witness this amazing, hands-on science learning.
