We had an excellent week. This week at music we practiced our piano skills, as well as learning a new instrument, the recorder. We also spent some time working on rhythm skills individually with Ms. Karen. In art with Miss Sani we made holiday cards so look forward to seeing those come home after the exhibition. At PE we played some winter and holiday themed games like floor hockey and pin the nose on Rudolph. We got some laughs out of pin the nose on Rudolph.
We built and decorated gingerbread houses this week and it was really great to see the Eagle have a discussion about what the consequences would be if they ate the candy. Lets just say a lot of push-ups happened ; )
In Civilizations we learned about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. We discussed which is worse for a ruler to have: too much anger or believing that you are better than everyone else? We also asked if it was right for a leader to use a lot of the country's tax money and resources on a personal project like the hanging gardens?
The Eagles have been working hard on our current animation quest. We are EXTREMELY blown away by the focus and effort that they have put into the quest this week. We look forward to sharing the results with you at the exhibition next week. Writer's workshop is moving along well and we think that the pitch for a field trip will be quite persuasive.
