Spring Fun and Trees!

The day before students went on spring break Ms. Connie, the cafeteria manager, setup a fun egg dying activity for students to do. They got to see the reaction the dye pellets had with the vinegar water. Then they placed a hard boiled egg into the dye and watched it change colors. At lunch students were able to eat their egg. It was a quick activity that the kids really enjoyed.

Later on in the day students colored in an egg that we turned into a bunny rabbit! We also wrote about what our silly bunnies could do.

When we got back from spring break we jumped right in to our DCAS pep rally! For the pep rally we sang 'Roar' by Katy Perry. All kindergarten and first grade classes had to prepare a cheer or song to inspire the older kids in the school that were taking the state test. 

Our class did an AMAZING job! They looked very cute up on stage in their animal masks singing along to the song.

During our first week back we also wrote about what we would do if we were butterflies. Each student had to write at least 3 sentences. 

Lastly, we got our trees!! For participating in the state Arbor Day poster contest each student got a pine tree sapling to take home! No one in our class won the contest, however, the kindergarten winner in the state was from Mrs. Williams class! Even though we didn't win all the kids were excited that someone they knew did win.

Check back soon for more updates!
