Ms. Sotelo's third- through sixth-graders held their Wildlife Fair with the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, where the students shared their projects and their animal signatures books (scat and tracks). Soon they will be off to Otter Cove to culminate their studies in marine biology for this school year.
Ms. Overturf's kindergarten class has been studying yoga to calm down in excited situations. They can demonstrate peace breathing, cobra, flower, butterfly, tree, waterfall, mountain, pretzel, candle and bird yoga postures.
Students also are learning about proper grammar. They are recognizing nouns, articles, verbs and adjectives. Maria Montessori assigned each part of speech a color and shape. Nouns are large black triangles, articles are light blue triangles, verbs are red circles and adjectives are medium blue triangles. This is an introduction to grammar work that will continue in the first grade.
Tuesday was the field trip for the salmon celebration at Johnson Lake in Kasilof.
Ms. McCabe's first-graders and Ms. Larned's first- through third-graders are studying marine biology by doing a mural and reading books in preparation for their field trip to the Alaska SeaLife Center.
The class also is celebrating Cinco de Mayo today.
