A STRANGE KIND OF WEEK
Spring break ended with an Easter champagne celebration at home with the sun shining, my children hunting eggs and the thought of school a million miles from my mind.
Then Came Monday-
Monday brought the thunderous noise of monster construction machines as they tore down the walls of the school, right outside my classroom! The children and I watched in awe as the giant ball smashed into the wall next to us.
Tuesday brought the snake!
As a part of our current unit of inquiry focusing on interdependence within the rainforest ecosystem, one of my students asked if she could bring her pet snake today. Distracted, I agreed, until I turned around and lo and behold, THERE WAS THE SNAKE! A Mexican milk snake apparently.
Wednesday Was An Outdoor Day.
With the noise of jack-hammers reaching a deafening all time high, I decided to take our learning outside. The sun was shining and the playground was just calling out to be measured….to the nearest half meter.
THURSDAY WAS MEASURING RAINFALL.
FRIDAY WAS PHOTOSYNTHESIS.
