Friday Seahawks students participated in Hazelbrook's annual fundraiser, the Jog-a-Thon. We had fun in Hawk Time dressing up as Disney animal characters. Seahawks students were Winner the Pooh (Bigelow's Hawk Time), Sebastien the crab (Troncoso's Hawk Time), the 101 Dalmatians (Brand's Hawk Time), and the character Stitch from "Lilo and Stitch" (Petrides Hawk Time). The Jog-a-Thon is Hazelbrook's only fundraiser, and the funds are used to help teachers purchase supplies, subscribe to classroom magazines, fund field trips, provide scholarships for events like outdoor school, etc.
Last week in Social Studies students practiced latitude and longitude, and learned about the first and second themes of geography. The first theme is called "Location", answers the question "Where Is It?" and is exemplified by the use of latitude and longitude. The second theme of geography is called "Place", and answers the question "What is it like there (in that place)?" As part of this theme, students will begin this next Tuesday to learn about different types of world landforms. Then on Friday, they will have a quiz over the landforms. It will be important for your student to study his/her daily notes so that they can do well on the quiz.
Below are pictures of my Hawk Time students, and students running the Jog-a-Thon.
