Time to celebrate all of the great work you all did over the summer.
Bring in those Reading Logs!!
Mrs. Frazier will be making a list of all of the Reading Minutes, IXL minutes, and Prodigy minutes you have done over the summer.
Some of our 3D prints didn't come out as planned. Mrs. Frazier is going to work with Ms. Spinney to fix them so that everyone who came to Veazie Summer Learning has at least one 3D print of their own to show off!!
You're a secret service agent and you've been kidnapped and are trapped in a basement. You have only three items and must use those three items to escape and save the President of the United States. Go!
I look forward to reading all of your wonderful stories.
This week, Mrs. Frazier and the VSLE students are taking on the "Exact Instructions Challenge". Each student will write the instructions for building a banana split. Mrs. Frazier will then make a video using the EXACT INSTRUCTIONS given for making the banana split and share it here for everyone to see.
Mrs. Frazier will have access to the following supplies:
vanilla ice cream chocolate ice cream spoons ice cream scoop spray whipped cream chopped walnuts a jar of cherries chocolate sauce bananas
You have written instructions for the banana split challenges.....Videos are coming soon, I promise! :)
Now, let's try something new. Write a "day in the life of" story using personification. This is when you give the characteristics of a person to something/someone who is not a person. For example, when you say the trees waved hello to them as they entered the forest. The trees moved but, did they didn't actually wave.
Your story should have a beginning-middle-end format. Length of the story depends upon you. No shorter than one paragraph, no longer than three pages.
Have fun with it!!
Greenhouse Wednesdays in July!!
Morning Time: 10:00-11:30
Afternoon Time: 12:30-2:00
We have begun our greenhouse adventure. The first vegetables and fruits are coming off. Thank you to everyone who helped our first week work out so well.
This week--July 12
We will be doing soil testing, building a worm habitat, and, if we have time, a small compost bin.
I would bet that we are all looking forward to summer. The nice weather has finally arrived and it takes our thoughts to swimming and playing outside. The other thing it takes my thoughts to is...Veazie Summer Learning. It's time to register and let us know that you would like to be part of the fun this summer.
This summer we will be working on our school garden as well as spending some time exploring and creating with our 3D printers and our LEGO robotics kits.
Check the links to the right side of the page to fill out your registration forms.
We are gearing up for the summer break! You can feel it all around the school. Smiling faces, outdoor projects, and we can finally see the sun!!
We have some exciting things happening here in Veazie this summer.
We are going to continue to work with IXL this summer. We will also have Prodigy available to us. Many of the students have already started working with Prodigy and have loved it.
We are MAKERS here in Veazie! We are CREATIVE! We are EXPLORERS!
To go with this, our theme this summer is "Ready, Set, Grow!!"
We are going to keep track of IXL and Prodigy minutes as well as Reading minutes. We will have a journal project as well.
Along with these things, we are going to have time set aside every Wednesday to come in and be creative. We will be tinkering with many different things during this time. Some of the things we plan on doing include: robotics, 3D printing, computer coding, and gardening.
More news to come in the brochures that will be going home soon!
