Pomanders with Fourth Grade Buddies

There was a wonderful smell coming from Ms. Senning's fourth grade classroom this morning.
The combination of citrus and cloves was traveling down the hallway.  Kindergarten students and their fourth grade buddies got together this morning to make pomanders, a clementine or orange with cloves pushed through the outside skin.  Students enjoyed creating snowman, stars, lines and swirls on
their clementines with the cloves.  They loved the smell and the opportunity to work with their fourth grade buddies.  What a fun morning!

Fourth Grade Buddies

We are thankful for our fourth grade buddies in Ms. Senning's class.  We had fun making turkey glyphs with them today.  Our turkeys told so much about us.  The number of feathers represented our age.  If our turkey had a yellow beak the person who made it was a girl but if the beak was orange then it belonged to a boy.  If the turkey body was black then the person who made it does not like to eat turkey but if the body was brown then the person likes turkey.  We love working with our fourth grade buddies.

Science Project

We have been working on a science unit on Organisms.  In this first part of the unit we learned about animal and plant needs.   We went to the Makerspace to design and build "dream homes" for pets.
Our pet dream homes contained everything a pet would need to survive.  We learned that animal caregivers have a big job when it comes to taking care of their pets.

Pajama Day

Friday was Pajama Day at school.   We love earning celebrations for our positive behavior.
It was fun spending the whole day in our pajamas.  We felt very cozy.   Our next class celebration will be on Wed., Nov. 1.  We are having stuffed animal day.  Students can bring in a stuffed animal that is small enough to fit in their backpack.  We are looking forward to having our stuffed animal friends join us for the day.
