Welles Crowther Pay it Foward

As part of our community walk, students learned what it was like to be a good citizen in their community. Students learned about Welles Crowther, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welles_Crowther, a hero in 9-11. They learned how he saved lives, while sacrificing his own. Students learned how he always carried a red bandanna. In remembrance of Crowther, students wrote kind notes and attached them to red bandannas. While on our walk, they passed them out to individuals, wishing them to have a good day and pay it forward.





Leggett Class Stanleys travel to France

We sent our Leggett Flat Stanleys to our partner classes in Le bourg in France. These schools are going to send us their class Stanleys. Students are going to take photos with them in different parts of France and we will do the same in Kansas and write where they are and what they are doing. We are looking forward to see where we travel in Kansas.

Natural Disaster Weather Forecasts

For our natural disaster unit, we created weather forecasts to demonstrate our learning. Here is a link to our class weather forecast website.

The students did a WONDERFUL job and used a lot of creativity. I think there is a great chance of a future meteorologist in the group.
