You should have seen the bugs and insects I saw at the Science Museum!

The highlight of my week last week was the visit to the Science Museum.  What a place!  They had everything you can imagine there.  Science is really cool.   I am learning that learning is fun when you put your mind to it.   I went to one room full of bugs and millions of insects. I am sure glad I did not being Andy along—because everything I way was dead and mounted for display.  Andy would not have like that!   What amazed me was how many living things there are that are even smaller than Andy—and I thought he was little (but wise).

There is so much to see and do at the Museum.  I am going to ask Dad to take my brother and me there for a whole day this summer.  We all could learn some valuable information.  I especially what to visit the space exhibit and see a moon rock.  Maybe I will take Andy then, but will not take him to that insect room!


Get involved in your child’s school.

Volunteer in your child’s classroom or a regular basis. This demonstrates to your child that you are really interested in what is going on and that you are supportive of his or her learning process. When you have volunteered, ask your child about how things went that day. Allow your child to give you their input. This is a way of illustrating that you value his or her opinion.

The Band Music Mystery

Learning to play an instrument is always fun.  As fourth graders, Joey and Andy both play in their school bands.  Joey plays the trumpet, and Andy plays the tuba.  Andy’s sister, Angelica, plays the flute. Band practice is three days a week right after school is out.

Find out how an unexpected adventure takes place when Joey “borrows” his neighbor’s music to practice for concert band, and Andy gets lost in a most unusual place.  If it wasn’t for Joey, Andy would still be lost.  To get the full story, you will need to get The Band Music Mystery in late 2014. In the meantime, guess where Joey eventually finds Andy!

Big trip to the Science Museum!

This week my whole class is going on a field trip to the Science Museum.  My teacher feels it will help is see how science helps us in everyday life.  Sounds good to me.  I’ve been wanting to get away from school for a day anyway.   We are going to go by bus and it will take almost an hour to get there.  I hear this is a big place with all kinds of wonderful things to see and do.   Learning this way really sounds like fun to me.

Oh, my teacher reminded us that our science project was due in three weeks.   I have not done much thinking about this. Frankly I was trying to forget it!   Maybe this field trip will give me some ideas.  I bet Andy would like to go to the Science Museum.  Wonder if I could bring him along and keep him out of site so the kids that don’t like insects don’t harm him.  It would be fun to have him join me.  We haven’t had a fun-filled adventure in a few weeks….
