Term 1, 2019: Weeks 5 – 7

What a great day Dad’s Day was last Friday. After the school shared some singing – and we sadistically enjoyed listening to the Dads try and get their mouths around some tongue twisters – we went back to our classes for special activities.

In our class, the Dads joined us for some “Minute-to-Win-It” challenges (cracker face, cup stacker, and chopstick challenge). The Dads helped train up the students in their group and provided encouragement when it was time for the competitive challenge. Following that, the best part: getting the Dads to give the challenges a try! Thanks for coming along Dads (and Dad equivalents!), and for giving us some laughs!

Speak up Dads!

Good luck telling your chiropractor why you’ve made an appointment!

We’ve continued our focus on solids, liquids and gases.
We’ve been learning to make predictions, test those predictions, and discuss our results.
