A Celebration of Learning

T's class had a "Celebration of Learning" yesterday afternoon. The kids got a chance to show off some of the things they've been working on in school.

Then any of the kids who played instruments could do a demonstration, so T. played his violin:
All the kids have been learning about advertising and marketing of products. They paired up and came up with commercials for products they invented. T. and his friend created the Miceaway 3000 mouse trap:

And his poems were:


Wife, teacher, mom, sister

Who fears centipedes

Who wants to be successful

Who gives happiness

Who says “I love you”



Helpful, loving

Helps, cooks, plays Guitar Hero

Helps me do my best


Then they sang another song:

And all the families posed for pictures:

That is a great picture of you at the end -- you look like a hottie mama.

Neat poems.
