Water Safety

We got visitors from the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department! They came in to teach us about water safety! After we learned about life jackets and basic safety rules, we got to climb around on their boat!

Wildlife Images!

We visited Wildlife Images, an animal rehabilitation facility in Grants Pass as part of our study on animals.  We got to get very, very close to wild birds, wolves, cougars (they purred!!), black bears, and grizzly bears!!!

Bullying Book Project

Taylor Martinez, our helper with Doo Wop, did her senior project with the help of our class. She wanted to work with the kids on an anti-bullying book. She talked about bullying experiences with them, then read “Cinderella” to them. Then she had them write stories about bullying (real or made up). They illustrated their stories, and she put them together in a book for the classroom. Here she is reading a story to the kids and helping them with their own stories.

What Did We Do This Week?

Doo Wop! That’s what we did! We had Doo Wop rehearsals at Crater on Wednesday and Thursday and then we had our performance on Thursday night! We also had our cast party on Friday.  Oh…we also did somethings with area, novels, and maps, but really, this week was all about Doo Wop.  We will work on getting picture discs taken care of and distributed first, then we will start burning the DVDs. It’s very time consuming, so please, please, please, be patient and we will get them to you as soon as we can. Until then, here are some pictures I took. They don’t compare to January’s, but hopefully they will tide you over for a little while. 🙂 Some are from backstage, and the others are from our cast party on Friday.

Harry & David Field Trip!

On Monday, our first day back from Thanksgiving break, we had ANOTHER field trip!! I’m pretty sure we’ve taken more field trips this year than any other in my career! We have been studying communities, and we are about to study holidays, so Harry & David seemed like the perfect choice! We got to tour the kitchens and see the magic of truffles and moose munch being made. Then we went over to the packing plant, and we say them packaging all the beautiful items. We also say them packing pears, which was pretty cool, and we saw them making boxes and sorting ribbon and bows.  All in all, an informative trip! Nice to see the inner workings of the Rogue Valley’s world famous institution!!!
