Fun Times At Reidenbaugh
We have many exciting things that happen at Reidenbaugh on a daily basis so we thought we would share some of them with you.
In Ms. Keath’s class they learned different ways animals survive in winter. Some animals, like bears, generate an extra layer of fat. The fat will keep body heat in and it protects animals from frigid temperatures. They experienced how fat works as an insulator by creating and using a “blubber glove” in ice water. This special “glove” protected their hands from the bitter temperatures! Pictures of their fun are attached.
Mrs. Duscha’s class they had a special visitor; Bea, the French bulldog is their new reading buddy. Bea is from K-Pets. Mrs. Dreyden comes too; her children were former Reidenbaugh students. Pictures of their fun are attached.
In all our Kindergarten classes they made puffy, snow paint and created 3-d snowmen. They used their pictures to write descriptive sentences describing their unique snow people and animals. Pictures of their fun are attached.
Mrs. Parker’s MDS class used the 3-D printer to create a tactile object for “go.” The MDS class is learning Core Vocabulary and the 3-D objects are helpful for students who have trouble seeing picture cards due to low-vision. The objects have a written word, symbol, and braille to represent different words. Students will use these tactile 3-D objects from Project Core to communicate various core vocabulary words. They had a blast seeing the printer create this object and they can’t wait to use the 3-D printer again to create more 3-D objects!
