Yesterday dairy cows came to our school and we learned a lot about them.  Here are some photos from their visit.

Salmon Hatchery

Today the captions under each photo have been written by us.  Ms. Lirenman did the typing but we told her what to write.

This is Derek. He guided us through the field trip. He was really nice.  He taught us about salmon.  He was really careful with the stinging nettle.

We saw Fry in cups.  These are salmon when they are small.  We each got our own cup. 

We are walking our salmon to let it go in the river.  We are walking very carefully. We learned that we had to put our hand on the top of the cup so the salmon wouldn't jump out. We learned that we couldn't shake the water.

We are walking down the bridge to the water.

We are about to let the salmon go.

We are letting the salmon go.  Some of the salmon jumped out.

Derek told us the safety rules before we went on a trail walk along the river.

Derek told us that sometimes there are bears around and that they like to hid in trees.  So we took a peek.

These are the bears we found. They didn't scare us they made us laugh.

We walked past some tanks of salmon.  They were jumping a lot.

Then we watched a movie.  After the movie we looked into the fry troughs.

Then we went to see the Coho.  These Coho are free to swim out at any time.  We fed them these little small brown pellets.  When we threw the food in the salmon jumped to the surface to eat the food.  In this picture they are jumping.  Can you see them?

Before we went  home we took a group photo.  As you can see it was a beautiful day.

Thank you to all the parents that drove us and stayed and learned with us.  It was a great field trip.

Most Fridays after recess we do yoga with Ms. Walia while Ms. Lirenman teaches her grade 3/4 students. Here's a little peek into our yoga.

We're In a Movie!

Last week Ms. Lirenman was asked to submit a video of us (including her) dancing to the song Happy by  Pharrell Williams as part of a district celebration.  Of course, with props in hand, we happily obliged.  Below is the final product. If you look closely around the 2 minute mark you just might recognize some dancers.

A Soccer Expert

Guess My Shape Riddles

We have been learning about 2d shapes this week.  One of the things some of us have been doing is tweeting shape clues to the twitter hashtag #2d3dshapes . Today with our big buddies we made Guess My Shape riddle books using the Explain Everything app.  While our books are not finished yet...  Here are some images of us working together.

Signs of Spring

We are starting to notice things are changing around here.  Spring has sprung.  We think we know a fair bit about Spring and shared some of that learning on a padlet. We also read a book.  Some of us shared our learning with popplet and some of us shared our learning with book creator.  Here are some photos of us hard at work.
