Last Tuesday, we went to Iowa Western and heard the symphony play. It was quite a cute production that was very kid-appropriate. It was performed like a play. There was an "animal guide" who was trying to get the animals to go back into their natural habitats. The music had to match the animal's mood to get the animals to go back to their original habitat. Students helped decide which music matched the mood of each animal. There was even a part in the symphony where students could play their "instruments" along with the music. We all brought "shakers" to shake during that part. They absolutely loved it. We also got to sing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" at the end of the concert. It was darling!! My favorite photo is the last photo in the bunch. Apparently, this field trip was not only fun, but it was exhausting as well!
Students had so much fun at our Valentine's Party. Thanks to everyone who helped out in some capacity. We couldn't have done it without you. Our stations included cookie decorating, games, a photo booth, crafts, and donuts on a string. I know there are a lot of them, but check out our pictures below:
