WThis week was J for Jammies and we all wore our Jammies. On Tuesday we kicked off our shoes. On Wednesday we had to postpone our field trip because of rain so we had lights off. We read with flashlights and glow sticks, did math in the dark and had lots of science for our Let's do Science day. Thursday we did Magic Math games and projects most of the day and on Friday we went on our field trip to Wildlife Prairie Park for Nature day. You can see our field trip pictures in the field trip part of our webpage. The rest of the week is below. We also got the beanbags and books from our donor choose grant.
