The 3-4 meteorologists are gathering data and using tools in their weather station, such as a barometer, anemometer psychrometer, and thermometer, to collect scientific data about the weather in order to make predictions and forecasts about future weather related events.

During center time we are exploring all kinds of lines and are using lines to make letters, shapes and numbers. Kindergarteners love exploring! They are doing activities, like making clay sculptures with pipe cleaners, to build strong finger muscles to help with handwriting and explore lines at the same time. 

 
To celebrate Indigenious Peoples' Day the kindergarten class has been reading books that honor the original inhabitants of North America. After reading My Heart Fills With Happiness, the kindergarteners wrote about what makes their hearts happy and recorded their ideas. Click here to see the students' artwork and hear them read about their work.

The 5/6 class has been studying the Water Cycle. This week they conducted an experiment to see if they could create clouds in jars, using shaving cream and food coloring! They used the scientific method to form hypotheses, record observations, and draw conclusions! Science is a messy, inquisitive process at Sage! 

In the 7/8 class, we are excited about our Independent Reading Books. Here's how we show off our IRBs!

The end-of-day read aloud in the Gr. 1/2 classroom is Stuart Little by E.B. White. The class became so enamored with Stuart and his adventures that they asked to build things for Stuart using our Think Tank supplies. The answer was a resounding YES!  Charged with the task of making something that would fit a 2 inch tall paper Stuart, the children eagerly imagined, planned, created and improved their projects. The results were amazing! From a bunk bed to a shipping vessel to a table with benches, Stuart became one lucky mouse!

PreK students have been busy exploring and learning new skills! Golf painting, peg boards, balloon painting and sand play. 

The 1/2 class started off the year with a very special self-portrait in art class! Students read Ella's Night Lights by Lucy Fleming and imagined what it might be like if they were a winged nocturnal creature sharing a bit of light with the world.

We are back to school and our love of learning together shows! The Sage campus engaged in a special team building activity. The 5/6 and 7/8 students each completed a piece of a group puzzle with their names. The students worked together to connect the piecing into a beautiful visual display. Fitting together at Sage!
