Our Giving Tree & Conduction Ice Race

I've been terrible about blogging this year! I'm so sorry to my followers. One of my goals is to get back in the habit of sharing what we're doing in the classroom.

If you've followed my blog for long you probably see that we love doing random acts of kindness in my classroom. I wanted to come up with a way for us to track the RAKs we had done so I decided to create a tree in the hallway. Each time the kids do a random act of kindness they write it on a heart. I plan to add the hearts to the tree as leaves. We are going to call it the Giving Tree.

Here's a picture of the tree before leaves & after a few leaves were added. I can't wait to see what it looks like at the end of the school year!

Our class was so excited that our Donor's Choose project was funded so we were able to get a few new Chromebooks. The kids used them for the first time this week and I can't wait to have them using them more often. 

Finally, we learned about conduction, convection, and radiation last week. 

I gave each student a piece of ice and they raced to see who could use conduction to melt it the fastest. 

Congratulations to the students shown below! They won a trip to Chick-fil-A in a limo!
