We have been working really hard to earn another rock jar party! The biggest thing we've been working on to earn rocks is transitioning quietly from the carpet, to the line, and to our desks! It's hard to stay quiet and not talk but our hard work was rewarded by a picnic snack followed by a few minutes of playing on the playground...because you can't possibly go outside on a nice sunny day without a little play time! (Sadly, our panoramic picture isn't uploading properly! I will keep working on it!)
We enjoyed a fun day with our special people! We watched this video, played at recess, and had a yummy lunch!
We spent the month of September learning all about sound. We learned about vibrations, pitch, and volume throughout this unit. Our final activity was to work with a partner to create a musical instrument. Students planned what type of instrument they would make and then worked together to create the final product! Everyone worked so well together and the end result was 12 awesome instruments! Since we worked with a partner and cannot take these instruments home, here is a music video to share our hard work! Enjoy!
