Third Time IS a Charm!

We were FINALLY able to visit the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art today!  I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful displays of the cut and polished stones.  You did a fabulous job of completing the scavenger hunt with your partner.  

Unfortunately, I was disappointed by some of your silly behavior in the museum and on the bus. In order for us to go on any more field trips, you will have to earn my trust that you can behave like mature fourth graders.  We plan on going to the Art Institute with Mrs. Avella in April and have the Living Sea Aquarium come to Ivy for an at-school field trip in May.  They will be bringing in some very cool "touch" exhibits, and this will go perfectly with our Oceans/Whale Unit!
