Week 11- Tuesday, June 9 Last Day of School!


Congratulations First and Second Grade! 
We made it :)




Dear First and Second Grade Families,

From the bottom of my heart,  I want to thank you for all your incredible support, flexibility and persistence over the past few months of remote learning.  Balancing work, teaching and parenting was very challenging and you have gone above and beyond in your support for your children.  I could not have done any of this without you. I feel a deep sense of admiration and gratitude for our first and second grade family, and consider it an honor to work with you all. I look forward to seeing you back at WES in the fall. I hope you can enjoy some rest, relaxation and peace over your summer. 

Mrs. Marcelino

Roald Dahl Museum

 



Visit the beloved children's author Roald Dahl museum. He wrote many books, some of which were made into movies, such as James and The Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, and more. You can see how the room looked in which he wrote these great stories and explore some parts of the movie sets.

How do you feel after taking your virtual ride on a roller coaster? 


Did you know that some people work all day at designing roller coasters as their job? They are called Mechanical Engineers. Some of the abilities that you need for this type of job are;

  • math skills

  • ability to problem solve 

  • creativity

  • technical skills

  • good at working as a team


Who knows, maybe you might make the newest and coolest roller coaster when you grow up.

What would you call it?

What would it look like?

Ready to give making your own roller coaster a try?


Follow the links below for videos that show you how to make a roller coaster out of materials you may have around your house, or just draw one on paper. Take a picture of your roller coaster creation and share it with your teacher!
