It worked!  We tried a new Science Project today and it worked!!  We made Spectrascopes in Science class and as always before we began I made the statement, "I don't know it this is going to work, but we will try and see what happens."  We covered the bottom of the paper towel roll with cardboard and masking tape, cut out the light slit, made the eye viewer and spot to slide in the CD.  Then it was the moment we had all been waiting for, we turned on the lamp and WOW, we could see a rainbow of colors through the viewer.  Check out pictures on the photos page.

This morning I had the students complete the following Journal entry:  Choose a television character you would like to be and tell why you chose this character.
Some of the characters students chose were, the guys from Myth Busters and Salena Gomez.  It was interesting to hear why they chose each character.

Welcome to a new school year!  I am always excited to see all the students arrive on the first day of the new school year.  They always arrive with smiles on their faces, happy to see their friends, excited to see where they will be sitting and ready to unpack the overfilled backpack with new pens and pencils, notebooks and folders.  Students in the 6th grade return with the confidence of knowing where to hang their backpack and where the pencil sharpener is, the new faces of the 5th grade students usually arrive out of breath from climbing the stairs to the classroom, they will get used to it...LOL.  Good Luck Wednesday!
