  Hello!  I hope everyone had a happy Easter and an enjoyable break.  We are all happy to be back and get back into our classroom routine.  

Back in the swing of things!

This week we have been talking about weather.  We read "It looked Like Spilt Milk" by Charles G. Shaw.  We talked about the different shapes of clouds we see in the sky.  In Science, we created our own rain and clouds in a jar.  We filled a jar with water, topped it off with shaving cream, and then added a few drops of blue food coloring.  The food coloring traveled through the clouds (shaving cream) causing it to rain into our jar.


  We loved making it rain but we sure hope Mr. Sun shows up soon!!!  



  This week you should have received an email regarding our EC/K celebration.  Please see below as a friendly reminder.
