Delevan Drive's First Father-Daughter Dance

On Friday, February 11, 2011, was our first, Father-Daughter Dance. Although the title says Father-Daughter, this dance was not just for our young ladies and their father. Our students were able to and did bring, their Grandfather, Uncle, Cousin, Older Brother and any male figure that has had a possitive impact on their lives. Some of my students came with their father and had a great time dancing and bonding. Thank you to all of our possitive male role models, you leave such a great legacy when you take the time to be with kids!

Valentine's Day Card Exchange

To celebrate Valentine's Day, we first decorated a bag for our Valentine cards and goodies. We drew on and colored them. We put stickers and used rubber stamps as well. Then, Mrs. Garcia came and did some face painting for us all. Next, we passed out cards and treats to each other. Lastly, we thanked one another, ate a cookie, and mini cupcake as we walked out the door. We had a lot of fun!

Sweet Project

We made marshmallow lollipops today! First, we wrote our name on the label that was on our lollipop bag. Second, we moistened one end of our jumbo marshmallows by dipping it on a wet paper towel. Third, we dipped our marshmallows in some sprinkles. After we dipped all of our marshmallows, we "glued" them together. We put marshmallow spread on their sides so that they stick to each other. Last, we put a lollipop stick through some of the marshmallows so that we have a handle. Our teacher and Room Moms helped us put it all in a clear bag and tied it up. We had a lot of fun! Thank you Mrs. Tse and Mrs. Hamet for doing a sweet project with us!

Starlab at Delevan

Our teacher borrowed the Starlab from LAUSD's Division of Science. Our PTA Treasurer helped her set it up, thank you Mr. Hamet.
Once the Starlab was set up, we crawled inside. It was dark inside but our teacher had a flashlight to guide us to our seat. Inside was a projector. It projected the stars and the different phases of the moon. The projector also projected the constellations that zodiac symbols are named after.
We will try to learn the stories behind each zodiac symbol. We can share these stories in third grade, when we get to the theme Telling Stories.

Delevan Drive's 4th Annual Try-A-Thon

Our 4th Annual Try-A-Thon was Friday, February 4, 2011. This fund raiser is to provide us an extra field trip. All of the proceeds will go our school.
Our first activity was basketball. We practiced dribbling and shooting lay-ups and free throws. Our coaches were Mr. & Mrs. Tse and Mr. & Mrs. Qua. Our second activity was calisthenics. We stretched, did sit-ups and went through the monkey bars. Our coach was Mr. Hamet. Our final activity was yoga. We cooled down, we took deep breaths and stretched. We tried to calm down, balance, and practiced being still like a tree. We curved our back like a cat. We made a v-formation, and we let out our "Lion" through our breath. Our coach was Mrs. Sood-Mankar. THANK YOU COACHES for your time, talent, and dedication!
