What an exciting week! Today we took a walk to Boone Hospital Center and had a tour of an ambulance. Marley and Syler were both excellent pretend patients! We learned about taking vitals, air casts and taking care of our body.
Spelling is way more exciting when you get to act it out! In our spelling workshop today we practiced spelling words by moving our bodies. We also have been focusing on the parts of speech. Our older students are drafting a rap. This is what they have so far:
OUR PARTS OF SPEECH
All right, we’re gonna name da'(the) parts of speech.
Break it down y’all
The first part of speech we’re gonna name:
a noun, person, place or thing
Now for the pronoun:
he, she, it, her, him, my and I
Now for the verb:
an action word, like “Hey that’s a flying bird!”
Adverb is the key to everything:
like easily, quickly, and I’m totally not singing quietly, I’m singing it loudly.
Now for the adjective:
a describing word, like we’re all rapping kids
Below are pictures from our workshop.

In the elementary classroom, the students are in their second week researching the Human Body. The teachers have observed the students’ excitement about this topic and their thirst to learn more.
Karlie, Taye, Elena, Rachel, Konrad, Leo, Maggie, Kaylee, Matthew, Nora, Marley, and Konrad have researched the body systems and have created a visual for each. Below are the six:
1) Nervous system
2) Skeletal system
3) Muscular system
4) Circulatory system
5) Digestive system
6) Respiratory system
Kindergarten through 2nd grade students have explored through songs and research the five senses, what they know about inside the body, and what our bodies can do. This week they will be exploring and researching the systems of the body after they listen to the other group present on the six body systems.
Students are leading the research and will be able to dive deep into an area of the Human body that interests them. They will follow the inquiry process by asking questions, finding reliable research, taking notes, and creating a visual. Their final project will be announced in the short future.
This week in preschool we began our unit on doctors! Our preschool teachers modeled how to play appropriately in the dramatic play area — Ms. Jennifer was the patient and had a bad cough. Ms. Taylor was the doctor and discussed how to use the various tools and forms and also discussed what kinds of questions the doctor may ask their patients.
Students were eager to take on different roles as a doctor, nurse, patient, family member, and receptionist.
