Thank you Mrs. Jones for letting us borrow the computer lab to use a BBC Science Clip. We loved making shadows grow in size using a digital simulation! The link is included below in a separate post if you would like to use it at home.
I have created a quick survey for parents about classroom communication in order to improve/change my communication with parents for the next school year. Please complete the short survey about how I communicated with parents this year so that I know what worked well and what could be modified.
I truly appreciate you taking the time to complete this!

Thank you again,
I am still looking for a few more chaperones for our field trip to Capron Park. This is a walking field trip, so adult supervision is key. Currently we only have two chaperones who have volunteered.
Our field trip is Thursday, June 1st. We will leave Willett at 9:15 and walk to Capron Park Zoo. The zoo opens at 10:00am. At that point we will enter the zoo and check out the exhibits! Our plan is to return to Willett by 12:30 and eat lunch by the garden.
This is such a fun and exciting field trip for students and it is so successful because of the parents who come with us! If you are available and already have a CORI on file with Willett, please consider joining us at the zoo! :)
Today we explored making indoor shadows! Students loved using flashlights and making shadows throughout the classroom. We discussed what needs to happen to make a shadow (light has to be blocked) and why not all objects make a shadow (sometimes light is redirected like a mirror and sometimes light goes through an object because it is transparent).
Today students explored how they can change the shape and size of their shadows outside. Students were asked to, with a partner, create a shadow with three legs, four arms, have the shadows touch hands but not the people, cross shadows without bumping into each other, and to have your shadow stand on your partner's shadow's head.
