The Jellyfish were lucky enough to be a part of the Preschool concert! We worked with the Dolphin, Penguin, and Smiley Shark classes to create a concert for our parents. Please watch our movie that shows us singing and performing! We have worked all year with Ms. Peachy, our music teacher, to explore movement and music.
We also had our last Jellyfish Family Breakfast this morning. Thank you for a great school year!
After many weeks of preparing, our show finally happened! We had such a grand time performing for our moms, dads, siblings, and classmates. Please take a look at our movie that shows all four performances. All four shows were written, planned and performed by the Jellyfish class. Enjoy!
The Jellyfish class began making a giant rocket out of cardboard before Spring Break. After returning, they went straight to work and finished their F1 Rocket. They continued researching for more information by tweeting at NASA astronauts and watching videos sent in by Ace’s daddy. The children continued to add to their play and wrote a class book about a dinosaur that went into space!
We ended our week by making mini-rockets using water, vitamin C tablets, and film canisters. Some of our rockets didn’t go very high but one shot over the fence! We noticed that the water turned yellowish/orange and there were bubbles forming. Watch our videos and look at our photos from this amazing science experiment!
Stay tuned for more…we are in the process of creating a Rocket Show/Birthday Party for our parents!
Thank you to everyone in the Jellyfish Community! We had such a wonderful time learning about all of our home countries, looking at flags, playing outside, and enjoying food from around the world! We loved learning new information from our parents and grandparents! Mommy Carrie played a game with us, Mommy Delphine shared a book about France, Mommy Emily taught us about Australian animals, Mommy Cyndi held a Swiss parade, Mommy Jenny shared a video about China, Mommy Adrianne shared facts about St. Patrick’s Day, and Mommy Karola taught us a game from Estonia! Thank you for being a big part of our flag ceremony and lunch everyone! Take a look at our slideshow from today…
The Jellyfish students took on the challenge to plan out their International Day outfits. They all took a Flat Stanley doll home and designed a costume. The students came back and shared their plans with everyone in the class. Take a look at what we are going to wear on International Day!

Ms. Liz had us explore shape by painting and drawing with black and white materials. We began our art projects by tracing blocks and shapes on to our paper. We then used white paint on black paper and black paint on white paper. Because of the paint choice, the students were able to focus on lines and shape. Wonderful stories were created to accompany the artwork. The students were focused and put much time and effort into creating a masterpiece! Watch our video to take a look!
Our first big event this week was Skyping with Ms. Maria! She agreed to chat with us and answer our burning questions about East Africa and Tanzania.
We ended our week by attending ISM’s Robolution! Our class has been waiting for this day for weeks..and it finally arrived. We went as presenters and as learners. The Jellyfish taught others how to run and play with the Beebots. We also took time to wander around and learn about what other things robots can be used for!
