Wright Brothers

video
We had a lot of fun learning about the Wright Brothers this week and all the work they put into making the first motor powered airplane.  We tried to be like the Wright Brothers in class and we made our own airplanes...paper airplanes!  We had flying contests, and like the Wright Brothers, if our plane did not fly so well we make some improvements on it so that we got better and better!

Broncos Day

I was so sad when the Broncos lost because I just kept seeing all of these cute little buddies dressed in their favorite Broncos clothes!  We had a fun day cheering on the Broncos (and SAINTS even though I tried my best to explain that they did not make the play-offs!) on Friday!

4th of July

We celebrated the 4th of July in January (everyone found that a bit silly!) since we do not have school in July.  We made flags, had birthday treats, sang The Star Spangled Banner and God Bless America to our country and learned about the time when we were only the 13 colonies and not the USA!
