ARTS & CRAFTS CLUB

Over the past several weeks, Mrs. James and the kindergarten Arts & Crafts Club were very busy finger knitting! Children have been learning how to make scarves, bracelets, necklaces and headbands using their fingers and yarn! Fun fact… The longest piece of finger knitting measured 4,321.4 m (14,177 ft 9 in) and was completed by Niklas Bernhard (Germany) on June 10, 2004. Niklas, who used woollen yarn left overs supplied by relatives and friends, learned to finger knit in kindergarten and then used this technique to improve his concentration. The finger knitted chain took more than eight years to be finished and was wound into a ball measuring 34 cm (13 in) and weighing 5.62 kg (12 lb 6 oz).

1ST GRADE DONUTS WITH DADS

On Friday, April 1st, FSA’s first grade classes hosted Donuts with Dad. Students in Mrs. Whitlock and Ms. Selstad’s class invited their dads to a morning of yummy breakfast, quality time, and some fun gifts. Students worked very hard and created donuts with a dozen adjectives to describe their dad, a story where their dad was a superhero, and a picture telling dads why they loved them! It was a very special time for all of us. We are so thankful for our dads!

2ND GRADE SOCIAL STUDIES

WOW! I am SO impressed with my students and the hard work they have done on their Cultures Around the World projects. I can tell that students really took ownership of their learning and worked hard to create something they could use to teach their classmates all about their assigned country. It also seems like everyone really enjoyed creating this project! I am so glad.

I was very pleased with the few presentations we had this morning. I love that I can tell our students have practiced what they will say to the classmates 🙂 We will do a few each day until we have presented all projects. I can’t wait to see all of the presentations!

Enjoy a few photos from our presenters today!
