What a treat to have Eva’s mom, Christina, visit our third grade classes to share her experiences as an archeologist. The children had lots of questions for her! She worked in Belize studying the Mayan ruins. Her specialty is jade.
Carrie and Laura planned a fun Parent Spot around the science of bubbles. Why are all bubbles spheres? Why do you see colors in bubbles? What causes the skin to form around bubbles? After making our own bubble wands, we went outside and experimented with bubbles.
One of our own is opening a restaurant soon. During the Parent Spot, we learned the steps to plan, design, and build a new restaurant. It was a great lesson and the children had lots of questions. We were all grateful for the T shirts and coupons too!

Thanks to the Jacobis, we made beautiful flowers to celebrate spring!
What an exciting game of Bible Trivia! The children are becoming very knowledgeable about the Bible.
What a fun and creative way to make tie-dye shirts. The children colored shirts with sharpies and then we dropped rubbing alcohol on them to give the shirts a tie-dye look. Thanks, Kimberly for planning a fun and creative Parent Spot!
In the spirit of our upcoming musical, we made lemonade during this week’s Parent Spot. It received rave reviews!
The children really look forward to Parent Spots. Before we made alien pencil toppers, we enjoyed The Astronaut Handbook.
Dr. Fitzgerald brought his son’s service dog to demonstrate how he cares for animals in his practice. He also shared how service dogs partner with their owners. It was a great tie-in to our animal unit.
We’ve had two crafty Parent Spots. We heard a cute story about bats and then we each created a bat. During the next Parent Spot, we decorated pumpkins using pointillism.
