Miss Williams finally made me an Instagram account. Follow me at @ZebesZebra or scan my nametag with Instagram.
Check out my Symbaloo for the pics from my amazing birthday.
Are you ready for summer?
Miss Williams has really enjoyed her year with all of her students. She loved sharing Zebes with them and all of the adventures he and Friend Mike had. Follow him on Instagram and see how he spends his summer. You just might see him out on the beach or a kayak with Miss Williams and Friend Mike.
What's Happening with DEEP?
Zebes and Miss Williams hope you take advantage of the Passport to Parks and come out and visit many of our State Parks this summer. Miss Williams will be at Rocky Neck State Park's Nature Center the weekend of June 21. Come on out and join her for some seining and fun activities. You can call her for the hours at 860-424-3013.
Fort Trumbull will host Saltwater Fishing Day August 10th from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Come on out and learn how to saltwater fish. We'll bring all the materials, you bring the picnic and the sunblock!
If you'd like to try hiking, the Sky's the Limit program is for you. This photo is from the Barn Island Wildlife Management Area in Stonington.
There are 14 different hikes in parks, forests and a wildlife management area which have been selected for this challenge. If you hike ten of them, take photos and send them in, you can earn a hiking medallion. If you do all 14 and send in your photos, you'll be entered into a drawing for a hand carved hiking staff. Check out the website for more details.
What's Going On In The Computer Lab?
We finished out the year with almost all students above 20 words per minute on their typing test. A couple of fifth graders are over 40 wpm. I'm so proud of all of them. We learned how to use the Google Drive, Google Docs, Book Creator, Google Forms, Seesaw, Epic Books, Code.org, Tynker, Prodigy, and a host of other things this year. Keep exploring & keep learning over the summer.
What's Miss Williams Reading?
Miss Williams is planning to re-read Wonder and because of mr. terupt over the summer. She loves them both and encourages you to read them.
If you have a Silas Bronson library card, you can use it at the Southbury Public Library and they are open on Sunday, during the school year. Their children's and teen section upstairs is a great place to read and play. You can always borrow a book there & return it to Silas Bronson, thanks to Bibliomation.
Remember, our local library loans out books, museum passes and DVDs (one week) for free. You can even get the museum pass online without going to the library.
Remember, there are free books you can borrow online from The Silas Bronson Library, without leaving your house! Get your library card number and click on the OverDrive logo to go there.
