Three classes were able to plant Pea seeds today. Pea plants like the chilly spring weather better than the hot summer. We planted the seeds one to two inches deep. They are supposed to germinate in 7 days. Germinate means sprout. We will be looking for them in a week!
Garden season begins today! Please bring your coat to every class with Mrs. Merdzinski because we will be going outside to look for signs of spring this week! We will be blogging about it, reading garden books in the library and making art in the art room! What did you see outside this week
After tracking the compost in our tumbler for over a month, we are disappointed in the progress we are making. The temperature inside the tumbler is still 80 degrees. It is very wet and heavy from the water, food scraps and shredded cardboard we have been adding. Are there any compost experts out there? We would like your help. Please comment below if you can help. We will be checking our blog every morning. Thank You for your help. The Compost Kids
Kindergarten and First Grade Students will begin exploring the internet through our Art and Technology Blog. We will be playing typing games online to get to know the keyboard a little better. We will also learn how to be Safe Internet Explorers.
Second Graders will begin creating comics with Master Comic Bill Zimmerman and Artist Tom Bloom. We’ll think of characters and plot with our own ideas! Practice using his templates at Make Belief Comics. This should be interesting!

Second Graders are working on writing autobiographies in the computer lab. We use Kidspiration software to organize our ideas and then write sentences. Next we will edit to create a paragraph, publish and print. Autobiographies can tell you about the incredible lives of the local second graders written by the students! Biographies are true stories about a person written by other people. Check some out hear at Bio 4 Kids.
