STEAM with the 4th grade

We have been having so much fun with the 4th grade! About a week ago, I read Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco to the class. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, it is a story based on the author’s real childhood where she was placed in a class at a new school referred to as “The Junkyard”. This class is a “special needs” class, and turns out to be filled with misfit kids, who are all “genius” in their own way. A junkyard can be a place filled with wonderful possibilities and our students found that out  by using objects from our STEAMROLLERS and a few other random items to create their own airplanes to go along with the story. More to come!

Just in time for Halloween, we received the final pumpkin in our contest and it’s a doozy! Our student, Milla, was sick yesterday so she brought her pumpkin in this morning. Check out the Raven from Edgar Allen Poe.  Milla even added a graveyard to up the spookiness factor! I loved all of the students’ creativity, imagination and hard work. With so many pumpkins, we felt unable to choose a winner so… a Pizza Party for all! Each student who brought in a pumpkin is invited to the Narthex on Wednesday, November 6 for lunch. Pizza and sodas will be available to all along with a Spooktacular medal for a keepsake. Congratulations to all who participated!
