Sending Mail

  • Alexander wanted to send the 2A class a letter because they have a mailbox by their door. After delivering a letter, he decided to send them a package too. Alexander and Mia created packages to deliver to their mailbox. Then we went with Colin and Mishaan to drop off the packages. It was particularly excited to raise the red flag on the mailbox to let them know that there was mail inside. During lunch, we received a thank you note from their class!

Music with Isabella 

  • Today we made a sound box during music with Isabella! We made a soundbox with rubber bands and discovered that without the box the rubber band does not make a sound, but with the box it makes a sound. Then we discovered that the sound box made even more noise with a bridge, separating the rubber band from the top of the box. When there is a shorter distance between two bridge, the pitch is higher. Isabella left us with one sound box. We are excited to experiment with it!
