Thank you grandparents for all of the wonderful postcards from around our country/world. We had so much fun getting mail each day and learning about where you live. Your grandchild also enjoyed being able to point to your state/country on the map. Thanks for making this so much fun for us. We have all of the postcards hanging up right now and we look at them often!

We did a science experiment this week. First we made a list of things that are solid, then a list of things that are liquid. Then we came up with a problem: Can something be both solid and liquid? Our hypothesis was that yes, something can be both. The first day we did our experiment we only made a liquid so our hypothesis was false. The next day though we managed to make something that was solid when we squeezed it and liquid when you opened your had. We had a lot of fun being a scientist AND making a huge mess!
Ms. Baker, the nice leprechaun!
After hearing about the earthquake in Japan, the class wanted to help out. We are now earning marbles and for each marble earned, Shawn and I will donate $1 to help people rebuild in Japan. We also have a couple of parents who will match our marbles which is a great math lesson! The kids are really getting into too and feel so badly if they have to lose a marble since it is taking away "food" from someone in Japan.
