February - Our Mystery Month

The fourth graders read The Westing Game and do some logic and puzzle activities during February.  We play a mystery Valentine game with some of the adults on campus, and since we are studying rocks and minerals in science, we have a mystery rock each day.  

This picture shows two fourth graders cracking pyrite to see if they get sparks.  They did.

Each Monday, the fourth graders go to the library and read to the 4 year olds.  On Groundhog day, we invited one of the four year old classes to come to our building, and we read to them a story about Groundhog Day.

Our campus allows us to do these activities where we can interact with both the pre-schoolers and the adults on campus.  We really do have a family atmosphere.
