Our theme this summer was Fizz, Boom, Read! We displayed all sorts of science decorations. We hung a solar system from the ceiling and the life cycles of butterflies and frogs from light fixtures. We discovered the super absorbent powers of polymers, learned about evaporation with our drinking bird, and watched a tree grow crystals. All in all, a very educational summer!
At the beginning of the summer, Mrs. August gave the kids a challenge. Every time a child turned in a sheet full of books they had read they could put a link in a pink, green, or blue chain. At the end of the summer Mrs. August had to dye her hair the color of the longest chain.
It may be a little hard to tell in this picture, but Mrs. August's hair is definitely BLUE!! All together the kids read over 3400 books or chapters. Way to go!
Now we have a little time to catch up on our projects before we jump into fall. Our first big event of the fall is the craft show beginning on September 2nd and running through the 12th. We plan to have a craft supply swap on the evening of September 11th. Start working on arts and crafts to show off!!
