We have been back to school for two days and I am already loving the learning going on! We have spent a lot of time learning rules, checking in supplies, and getting to know each other, but we have snuck in some time for learning :). Check out the pictures above of our first engineering challenge using marshmallows and spaghetti to build towers. We are also practicing uncorking in groups.

We are so proud of Rain for representing our school at the Go! St. Louis Read, Right, and Run Marathon. Rain had to read 26 books, do 26 good deeds (right), and run 26.2 miles. The final 1.2 miles were completed at Forest Park this past Saturday. Here are some pictures from the event!
Some of our students wrote plays to teach us how to perform well on the evaluate test. Here are some of the plays.
We will miss you Ms. Dolan. Good luck at your new job!
Today in science class we learned how sometimes our brain can be tricked into thinking something that is not really happening. In order for our brains to know we are moving, we have to be able to compare stationary objects to moving objects. Here is a website with more brain tricks called optical illusions.

We have been away from school a lot in the last month for Winter Break and for all of the snow days. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for spring! I will be working very hard in the next week to upload pictures and video taken in the last month, as well as get the students to the lab to update their own blogs. We are in the middle of completing our mid-year testing and haven’t had much time to make it to the lab.
