5th Grade Book Club!

For the Fall Fabulous 5th Grade Book Club, we read The Giver by Lois Lowery. It was a great celebration with students, their parents and Ms. Albert & Mrs. Hanson. During the discussion, the students and parents brought thoughtful observation about the book. We discussed symbolism especially the color red and how the Giver changes throughout the book. Then we played an exciting and very close scoring game of Jeopardy! We ended the book club by watching the movie trailer to The Giver and we have plans to see the movie as a group in the near future. If you missed out on the Fall 5th Grade book club, Mrs. Hanson and Ms. Albert  have plans for a Spring club!

Adams Magic Acres Garden News

We had some great helpers turning the compost!  Do you know what compost is?  Composting is nature's process of recycling decomposed organic materials into a rich soil known as compost. Anything that was once living will decompose.  These students were pulling weeds from the garden beds, adding them to the compost bin, and turning it to help mix the compost.

Look what we we also found in the garden!  What animal is this from?  A squirrel? No! A goose? No!  A songbird?  That's right a songbird!  Songbirds, like the yellow and black goldfinch, have been seen eating sunflower seeds in the garden.  Birds are an important part of a healthy ecosystem, so we can feel good about helping to feed the birds.
