Urban Ecology Center Visit

May 13, 2018
By Mrs.Galvan

Even in the rain the Urban Ecology Center proves to be a great place to visit!  We got to see native animals, walk through the park observing flowers and trees, say hello to the Milwaukee River, and identify different birds by hearing their songs!

 

   

 

   

 

Planting time!

See our bean and carrot seeds sprout!  We are having fun observing how the roots grow down and the stems grow up!  Some of the plants already have leaves on them!

 

   

We ate all the parts of the plant!

To culminate our study of plant parts we actually ate all the parts of a plant!  We had sunflower seeds, carrots for the roots, celery for the stem, spinach for the leaves, and broccoli for the flower!   Scholars enjoyed their tasty snack with a little ranch dressing on the side!

  

 

  

Ethiopia,

April 13, 2018
By Mrs.Galvan

K4A and K4B had a lovely visit this morning from Blythe's grandma and great grandma as her assistant! Missionary Tammie is a surgeon here in Milwaukee but travels all over the world to provide aide to people in need.  She saw first hand the differences between what we have here in the States and some of the third world countries, Ethiopia in particular.  Some astonishing facts we learned were that children as young as five years old have to walk miles every day to fill up jugs of water for their household.  They do not have technology, clothing, food, and even families the way we do here.  In fact, she was able to feed 20 children out of one McDonald's meal, and they were so grateful just to have some food that day!  We tied the service project in with community helpers and Missionary Tammie brought scrubs for the scholars to wear and practice helping heal the sick.  What an incredible experience we had this morning!

What's happening in K4A?

Buddy poetry writing

May 17, 2016
By Mrs. Galvan

We spent some time with our 7th grade church buddies to do some writing.  It was an incredible activity!  We took all the sight words we have been learning and put some together to make a little poem or a sentence and then drew a picture to go along with it.  We couldn't have done this without our buddies, we are soooo lucky to have them! Way to go K4 and 7th grade!!

 

     

Writing sentences!

May 17, 2016
By Mrs. Galvan

  

 

   We have been working on identifying sight words in reading, and now we are applying them to writing.  In our small groups scholars are working on using upper case letters to begin a sentence, finger spacing between words, and proper punctuation marks!  They are so proud!

Examining bugs!

May 15, 2016
By Mrs. Galvan

We learned a lot about bugs and insects this spring.  Scholars enjoyed examining some a little closer using magnifying glasses!  

        

 

Eating all the parts of a plant

May 06, 2016
By Mrs. Galvan

As a culminating activity to finish up our planting unit, we did a little project to eat every part of the plant!  We tasted seeds (sunflower), roots (carrot), stem (celery), leaves (spinach), and flower (cauliflower).  For the most part the scholars ate everything up and even asked for seconds!
