What happens when Music class, Library, and Destination Imagination integrate ideas and resources? Banana pianos!
Thanks to an idea from Mrs. de Silva about integrating Science and Music and Makey Makey materials available in the Library maker space, DI kids experimented with a new way to make sound effects and music. Students proved that electricity flows through our bodies as conductors as they created music.

In Ms. Brown's ELA class, Lucky the Leprechaun dyed their pasta green, and they had hands-on fun punctuating sentences with pasta, and even let the pre-k come in on their hunt for the school leprechaun!
The pre-k students chased the Leprechaun all over campus reading clues, finding gold, and setting traps!
In the end, he was too sneaky to be caught, but he did leave treats, and the kids had a blast! We hope you had a great St. Patrick's Day weekend. See you tomorrow!

Last week, Mrs. Kershaw's class learned about clay, lohm, silt, and sand. They identified places they might find each, and were challenged to find as many different types as they could on the playground and in the garden.
They aloso examined cabbage plants and described the function of each part, and even got to investigate their class compost to see the decomposition process!
We lost many of the garden plants in the freeze, but it will be planted again soon!
To wrap up 2nd Grade's economics, Karen Boss from Red River Bank visited our second graders last week! They shared what they learned about wants, needs and bartering. Ms. Boss talked to them about the importance of making smart choices with their money and why they should start saving for the future. Many thanks to Karen Boss and Red River Bank for their partnership with BRCVPA and to Ms. Berry for coordinating the visit!
You may remember getting a letter from Governor Edwards on January 31st about Bandit's Book Challenge. The letter challenged students to read at least 10 books between January 31st and March 15th. There is also a bookmark design contest template. Students are invited to design a bookmark that depicts the importance of reading from a child's perspective.
All reading logs and bookmark templates are due Thursday, March 15th! Click below for the letter, the reading log, and the bookmark template if you have misplaced yours. Thanks for reading with your children at home!
Our 3rd graders are creating abstract self-portraits with chalk pastels in art class. This project was inspired by the artist Sandra Silberzweig, who has synesthesia, and experiences color through senses other than sight. You can read more about synesthesia HERE, and more about Sandra Silberzweig HERE.
Last week in Ms. Smith's class, students learned to solve real-world problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number. To understand the concept, they began by using straws and disks to represent the scenario and solve the problem. After this, they moved on to representing the same types of scenarios using tape diagrams. This will be helpful when you tell your kids they are only allowed to eat 2/5 of their Easter candy!
