The Yoyo Man

Mr. John Fox, from Seattle, came to talk with us today about life, school and yo yos. He showed us lots of different trick to do with a common yoyo. Mr. Baker remembers his yo yo years when he was young. John even taught a couple of our guy students how to curtsy. We all had a great time. Yo yos are being sold out of the school office for the next week. Ask your student about the pitrate flag (the scull and crossbones).

Student Teacher Ms. Erickson - The Egg Lesson

In science we are studying adaptations. One of the activities we did involved eggshells. We took the halves and placed them on the desk. Next we placed textbooks on top of the eggshells and saw how many textbooks we can put on top of the eggshells. We saw how the dome shape helps strengthen the egg, but the egg is still fragile so the baby chick can get out.
