Inside, the children put the finishing touches on their costumes and the backdrop for their Latin play, ubi est Glaucus? ( Where is Glaucus? ). Thursday afternoon they performed the play for some parents and grandparents.
In Science with Shan, the children did an experiment with candy canes. In Homeroom, they did an ice experiment. They sprinkled salt on ice and observed what happened. Then they added colored water which made all the holes and cracks even more visible. If you want to observe the results, you can find the colored ice setting on the stones outside the classroom window.
A writing project this week turned into our presentation at "Morning Meeting". The children wrote their own etiquette stories based on What Do You Say, Dear? by Sesyle Joslin. They read their short stories to everyone at school on Friday morning.
