Skyping with the Shark Girl

On Wednesday we got to have our first Skype experience this year.  The entire fourth grade joined together in our classroom to meet with Jillian (http://www.shark-girl.blogspot.com/) who is a marine biologist.  The students were so incredibly excited to get a chance to talk to her and were intent listeners through the whole thing.  They asked great questions and learned things about sharks they never knew before.  We have really started to build a love of sharks in this school thanks to Jillian and www.sharks4kids.com.  Get online with your family to learn more about what our kids are learning!

Nebraska Days- 2013

This is a video from Nebraska Days, Spring 2013.  I love seeing the kids in this video showing off all of their hard work.  Nebraska Days is my favorite part of the year where the kids write papers about famous Nebraskans and get to be those people for a day.  They write reports, memorize them, and are given the opportunity to share them with their parents and school-mates.  Miss these kiddos and I can't wait until Spring to get the chance to do it all over again!  Watch the video to find out more!
