Today we were introduced to different instruments that we can play next year in elementary band. Mrs. Yealy and some student helpers showed us what each instrument sounded like and played us a sample song. We even got to try out these instruments on our own.
Today, we participated in our Race for Education. Thank you to all of our sponsors who help to support Saint Joseph School.
Catholic Schools Week starts this week. Today we got together with our prayer partners and created out own superheroes (out of only scrap paper). We had lots of creative ideas. Students had to use perspective in order for their superheroes to fit onto the door.
We had a very busy month in November. We celebrated our Fall Fundraiser winners. Also, we thanked our veterans by celebrating Mass and singing patriotic songs. As a class, we have been learning about weather and climate. We completed a project that had a build a house out of paper. Then, we had to make improvements to that house so that it did not blow away when the wind blew. Oh, what creative solutions we found! We have also been thinking about things that we are thankful for since Thanksgiving is coming We are a very thankful class. Lastly, we met with our prayer partners. They are learning about Ancient Egypt, and we joined them to make pyramids likes the Egyptians.
This week, we have met with our prayer partners. We were given the task of working together to create a boat to sail across the sea, just like Christopher Columbus. We had to brainstorm our ideas, figure out the cost of our ship, build the ship, and then sail across the sea. Some of our boats made the journey, but others did not.
Today, we completed our gas trap experiment, We have been talking in class about weather and clouds. In our experiment, we created clouds in a cup. We have learned that clouds are made mostly of water and that clouds can be formed inside of a cup.
