Addison showed us all how fully she's mastered the Soundabet. To celebrate we went outside a bit earlier than usual for bikes.

Just as soon as we got outside to ride, a raincloud opened up and really rained hard. We took shelter under the eaves of the classroom and I asked the class to count in unison until the rain stopped, I thought we might have to count as far as 100, (or maybe longer) but by the time we reached 47 the rain ceased as suddenly as it had begun.
Happily, the garden program started up again this week. That means we'll be riding bikes Mondays, Thursdays and on second and fourth Wednesdays. Students freely choose to ride bikes or dig in the garden. Sometimes they leave their helmets on while gardening, which probably makes sense with all the shovels and rakes around.

We made sure to pick up every last little piece of trash on the playground. Cash was the custodian of the trash bucket. Here Lexi helps him fill it. At the end of each bike day we'll count the trash we collect and report on the results at the April assembly.
