Snow
Out playing in the snow at recess was amazing. We built snowmen, snow forts, snow ramps and snow tunnels. We also went sledding. We got so much snow on Tuesday and Wednesday  the 27th and 28th of January, we can dig under the snow. We found one of the picnic tables under the snow. Some of the kids dug under the tables and built a fort there. We plan to spend more time on it and play as long as the snow mounds are here.

Ukuleles
In the world of the upper grade room, there is some brand new instruments... UKULELES! So far, we are planning to have a spring concert, and we will show off our playing skills. So far we do not ,know which song we are going to perform, but we know how to play C,F, and G7. I asked Chloe Alley how she felt about the ukuleles and she says, “ I really like them and they are really fun to play.” She also says, “I’m considering getting one!” What a great experience we are having.

Testing
Last week 4-8th grades tested. The tests were to analyze what we know already. We had a couple difficulties with the tests because we are using a different program called Acuity at Home. The program had four different tests. Two language tests and two math tests. When we got done a test we could check over our answers, save and exit the test, or submit the test. Some of the tests were on computer and some were on paper. Most of us turned in our last test on a Friday. After that the 4-8th graders went back to a normal day.

Monday, Feb. 23rd, was scheduled as a workshop day.  Due to the number of snow days, we are changing that to a student day.
