Flubber is so much fun to play with at school and fun to make. After reading Friends at School by Rochelle Bunnett, we decided to make flubber just like the kids in the book did in their classroom. Two parts cornstarch, one part water, and food coloring give you flubber. Students explored the properties of objects and material and how they change.
Mrs. Parrish brought Polly Paintbrush to art class. We learned how to treat Polly Paintbrush and the watercolors, how to clean her hair, and how to keep all the watercolors in tact. Learning to paint and exploring with colors is fun!

Coach Cameron brought us a cool parachute to work on all sorts of skills with today! Students took directions - walk holding the parachute with your right hand, jog holding with your left hand, slide holding with your right hand. After many warm-up activities, we learned to catch a bubble with the parachute on the outside and the inside. Students also listened as Coach Cameron called out colors and students ran from one side of the parachute to the other when their color was called.
