4th graders got to learn and see so much about our wonderful state of Wisconsin during their field trip to Madison. They visited the WI Historical Society, the Veteran's Museum and our state capitol! Students even shared their knowledge that they have learned throughout this school year about our states history.

Many preschoolers got to be the teacher during our thematic farm unit. They taught their classmates that life on the farm takes a lot of hard work, but they also enjoy many of the jobs they do. Some of their favorite jobs include feeding animals, collecting sap, milking cows, riding horses, and of course riding in combines and on tractors. A big thank you to the parents for sending the pictures! We sure enjoyed them!

Kindergartners at AES participated in Jr. Achievement which is a class that teaches age appropriate money management skills. Tracy Engel taught our class and then invited us to learn about the bank where she works. Thank you, Tracy and Forward Bank!

The 4th graders traveled back in time to 1904 to learn just like a pioneer student would. They got to learn about turn of the century arithmetic, penmanship using dip pens and ink, recitation, geography/history, and spelling. Students dressed their part and even brought pioneer lunches! Thank you to the Marathon County Historical Society for allowing us to visit the Little Res Schoolhouse and our wonderful pioneer teacher, Mrs. Moellendorf. Lastly, thank you to our YES group for funding our transportation. We had a fun day of learning!!!

Second grade readers went to the Athenian Living Center last week. These girls read several books to many of the residents. It was an awesome experience for the girls. The residents were so happy to visit and listen to our students.

March 20th- Ted Schultz-Becker Ted is a great student! I enjoy his fun personality and his work ethic! He is very creative, thinking "outside the box" for his box shape, which is more complicated than the average box. Here are two sides of his treasure chest!

March 21st- Chase Ellenbecker Chase's version of Picasso Guitars was very well executed. He used wonderful different blue hues (reminiscent of Picasso's Blue Period), broke up his well drawn guitar (a common element in Picasso's paintings) showing a sense of the Cubist Movement. Great work, Chase!

March 18th and 19th- Lena and Luna My two "L" third graders who consistently create great work! Here are their birch tree projects, where they had to create space with overlapping, as well as consider the color and direction of light and shadow in their winter scenes!

March 17th- Itzel Espinoza Itzel is a kind student who pays very close attention to detail. Her two basketball themed projects are shown here. The first was her box, where her intricate net detail really makes her piece stand out. The use of value (lights and darks) in her painting of this NBA player painted using analogous colors bring a great sense of space and form to her work!
