End of the year fun!

As the end of the year approached we had some fun learning opportunities that took us off the island, as well as having some visitors come to the classroom. We had a dental hygienist and ophthalmologist student come to our classroom to teach us how to take good care of our teeth and eyes.  We also took a few days off the island and headed to the Maine Wildlife Park and Peaks island.

Writing Letters To Our Pen Pals!

Over the course of the school year GBSD K-5 class has teamed up with the Rhode Island School for the Deaf (RISD) elementary class and developed a pen pal project. The students each write a letter and share some new information about what they’re learning in school and ask some questions to their “pal”. The students are always thrilled to hear back from their new friends at RISD. This collaboration has sparked some great conversations while also developing and fostering our literacy and writing skills.

Waves of Light, Sound, Sight, Reflection and Shadows

In science we have been discussing waves, specifically, light, sound and sight. Here is a project we did about shadows. We traced different objects to create and opague item. We then used curtains to cover the windows and make the class room very dark. We then placed a large spotlight on our objects to create different shadows
