Another great Book Fair at Ambrose! Thank you to the many volunteers for making it happen. Both students and teachers were thrilled with their new books. Thank you for the generous donations.
The patterns, colors, and creativity when walking into the art room hit me like a ton of bricks! Our grade 3 students were fully engaged and enjoyed sharing with me the patterns created and their choice of colors when constructing a weaving. I found it fascinating to hear how each student completed their planning prior to their execution. Some students pre-planned their colors and the pattern while others executed with no pre-planning. Either way, the end result was a weaving full of vibrant colors and creativity.
All the while, grade two students were visiting the Ambrose garden (located next to the Sanborn House) to make observations of a field habitat. Students looked up, down, and around them to observe what they saw, felt, heard, and smelled. During the observation process, students generated many thought provoking questions about a field habitat. Why do clouds move? Why is there grass and what is grass? How do animals survive the cold temperatures? Now this is authentic science in action!
