Welcome Back!
Lessons for this week:
Math: Review of basic Math with Moby Max.
Art: April Showers. A very cool Pinterest find…. no websites to reference… so we’ll have to make it up as we go!
Rain, Umbrella's, Puddles. Fun. Health/Technology: All grades will work on Pixie to create a slideshow from the last few weeks lessons on food, nutrition, and physical exercise. Like a an exam. Use those resources kids and show us what you know, learned and can add from Pixie! 4th grade will be doing a web quest on a famous author.

Easy, Cool, Fun!

Easy, Cool, Fun!

A very busy week here at Beechnau wrapping up March is Reading month and getting ready for Spring Break. Hope all the students have a great break from school, the weather warms up here in Western Michigan and then get ready for what I call the big “Roller Coaster Ride” from here to the end of the school year!
Enjoy your time with family and friends!

Sugar Blendspace Click here to learn more about sugar. Did you know that the amount of sugar you should have each day is limited to about 25 grams, or 6 teaspoons, per day. That fact is for adults. Check those food labels! Kids at Beechnau should not have more than 3-4 teaspoons and kids in the Middle and High School should limit themselves to 5-8 teaspoons.
Good luck at making your song! That should be a cool project!!
The Four Tops Video: A little music appreciation this week too!

A Classic!

A Classic!

Harold and the Purple Crayon Use this BlendSpace lesson to learn about the book and how other students created art from this classic book. Imagination is a wonderful thing! Take a Large sheet of white paper and used two per table. Using only purple crayons begin to draw a scene. Add onto other student’s great ideas and then when the teacher calls “Time” switch to another table to continue to design a unique paper as a class together. They will be linked together and hung in the hallway for display! Go for it, let that purple crayon take you where ever you want. Go on an Adventure!
