Jack and the Beanstalk and a Few Presidents

Hope you're having an awesome weekend! 
We are officially on Spring Break! 
Today, I want to share a few activities we did while learning about Presidents and reading Jack & the Beanstalk.

Last week, we used Cara's Pint-Sized Presidential Unit and wrote
 about what we would do if we were President.  


"If I were President, I would tell the house builders to put cameras
 in houses so that kids would behave..."  
Teacher's Kid!!

 "If I were President, I would help my Mom's boss lady eat and put her clothes on."
Her Mom is a Home Health Nurse! Ha!

We also learned about Dental Health! How did I not take pics?? 
I'll post those next time!

The Arctic
How cute are these??
Our Venture students (Gifted Classes) studied The Arctic
 and created this polar bear and igloo! 

The polar bear is made out of newspapers. 

The igloo is made out of water and milk jugs.

We couldn't help but use this as a photo op!! 
The kids thought the inside looked really cool!

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Spring Break (if that's you)!!
