Snow doesn't stop us on Community Day! We had a great time trucking around town on our Aspen adventure. We toured the bank, talked to the tellers, went back behind the safe and learned about lending. We hopped over to City Market and rode the giant elevator. We went “behind the scenes” and toured the Bakery and we even went in the freezers! Brrr! We managed this all before lunch :)
Try it at home! Watch the video and draw a turkey with Mom and Dad. Can they draw a turkey too? Color your turkey and display him for Thanksgiving. Good luck!

Did We Mention We're Tree Experts Too?
Thanks to our friends at ACES we've learned all about trees and their purpose in our community.
Last week we learned about animal communities and how they work together to keep each other safe. Did you know a dinosaur community will make a circle around their babies to protect them from predators? Some students invented their own dinosaur and wrote about how it protects itself. Meet the JPosaurus. It stays safe from predators with it's lightning tooth and six eyes...all the better to see you with. Watch out!
We've been working hard at our How To stories and today we learned how to babysit a Grandpa. One way is to entertain him. You can entertain him by somersaulting across the room, putting on a scary play and showing off your muscles. The hardest part is waking up a Grandpa. You should try lifting him with your muscles, tickling his noes and his toes or singing on "On top of Old Smokey" softly then LOUDER and LOUDER! Read it at home!
Working on our own How To Stories
We used our technology Thursday to work on writing book reviews. We've been reading and listening to stories and we're loving them.. Sophia and Leilani are typing their book review of the book, Stuck on the IPad here. Find their review on our site soon!
