A man walked into a bar...He said ouch!
Lunch and Learn Reporter, Ally
This week for lunch and learn, I chose walking club. During
walking club, kids in kindergarten through third grade walk around the
school. Kids from fourth through sixth grade walk to the creek. Every
time you walk you earn feet (which are put on a shoelace necklace.) For
every five laps you walk, you get one foot. I think everybody should get out
and walk! Next week, Winchell school is having a walk-a-thon.
I hope you will help sponsor!
Taylor's Class Works with Transparent Mirrors!
Math Reporter, Nate
This month in math, we worked with transparent mirrors. They are plastic mirrors that
you can look through on paper. When you look through them, you see everything you
would see with a mirror. We traced the images we saw while looking through the
mirrors. We did an activity called "Build a Clown." It showed a hat, nose, mouth, etc.
We used our mirrors to move the things around and we drew the reflection where we

Reading Reporter, Tiffani
This month we are reading two stories: "Breakers Bridge" and
"Justin and the Best Biscuits in the World." The second book is about
a boy who doesn't want to do very many chores. His grandfather comes
to visit and they have a fun time together. His grandfather makes Justin
biscuits that are cooked over a fire. It is a pretty good book.
Read it, I'll bet you will love it!
Taylor's Class Made an Erupting Volcano!
Science Reporter, Nate
This month in science, we started learning about volcanoes. Our Intern, Mrs. Lenaway,
built a volcano. It really erupted! We used baking soda, vinegar, food coloring, an
empty pop bottle, a measuring cup, a bucket, spoons, a dropper, detergent, and snow.
To make the volcano erupt, we put the snow in the bucket and buried the pop bottle in
it. We added 6 spoonfuls of detergent, 8 drops of red food coloring, 2 cups of vinegar,
25 Ml of cold water, warm water, and 6 spoonfuls of baking soda. When we put it all
together, the volcano erupted reddish water. It worked correctly.
One day, Frank, Bob, and Bill went to rob a bank. When they were running away, they heard the sirens of a police car. They hid in three potato sacks. The police kicked Frank's sack. He said nothing. The police thought it was potatoes. Then they kicked Bill's bag. He said, "meow, meow." They thought it was an old cat. They kicked Bob. He said, "just potatoes." He got arrested.
