# Escape the Classroom!

During Math, the students were challenged to escape the classroom!  They used their knowledge of fractions to figure out clues in order to unlock codes.  They had one hour to solve four codes.  Most of the teams were able to escape!

# KSU Field Trip

We participated in KSU's Education Day at the women's basketball game. The students were able to participate in physical activities before the game began.  The game was a lot of fun and the Owls won!

# OPTIONAL Assignments

The weather this year has been crazy!  Since this is our 5th day of missing school this year (and I’m thinking we might be out tomorrow too), I have put together some activities that your child can work on.  These activities are OPTIONAL.  You may have your child complete all, some, or none of the activities.  I just wanted to give you some choices if you would like for your child to continue their studies while we can’t be at school.

# Tellus Field Trip

We learned so much about fossils at the Tellus Museum! We got to make fossil molds, dig for fossils, and see casts of dinosaur fossils.  We may have some future paleontologists in our class!

# Writing Celebration

The students wrote and published informational writing pieces about topics of their choosing.  We celebrated their writing by sharing it with others!
