Can You Beat Miss R. Putt-Putt Party!!

This school year I challenged my students to earn more AR points than me on books we read throughout the year.  I try to read as much as I can, so this is usually quite the competition!!

Four students of our 21 were able to achieve this goal, and today we got to celebrate with a trip to Putt-Putt Fun Center for a few rounds of mini golf!  I am happy to report that I was able to beat at least a few of them at something…even if it wasn’t AR points!!  🙂

Here are a few pictures from our outing today.  Congratulations again to these students for their achievements, and keep up the great reading next year, too!!  🙂

Oobleck Science Lab Fun!!

Pardon the delay in posting, but better late than never, right?  😉

The last week of school, we spent an afternoon exploring the joys of “Oobleck”, a substance perfect for figuring out the difference between solids, liquids, and gasses.  Though OUR version was given to us by scientists at NASA, you can make your own version at home with water, corn starch, and your choice of food coloring.  🙂

Here are some pictures from our fun (and messy!) explorations!!
