Recently one of our #WatertownWay families at Lincoln STEM Elementary generously donated three Aquaponics systems. The systems included the aquariums, seeds for planting and fish! Classrooms have enjoyed naming their fish and learning to care for them, exploring how to grow microgreens using aquaponics and a 2/3 class at Lincoln STEM harvested and made three different recipes using the microgreens this week! They enjoyed a radish microgreen salad, pineapple and wheatgrass smoothies and an avocado and pea shoot bagel sandwich. A BIG thank you for the gracious donation of these systems that are bringing real-life learning into our classrooms!

Mrs. Peters’ #WatertownWay 4K class at Webster Elementary had a special tailgate snack last week as they celebrated the opening of Major League Baseball for the season! They have been reading the book Goodnight Baseball by Michael Dahl. Students were handed tickets to match an uppercase letter to a lowercase letter to find their seat - just like they would at a baseball game! They sampled hotdogs, ketchup, mustard, relish, cracker jacks, root beer, and ice cream from Mullen’s! While sampling, the children reported on a sheet whether they thought the food was ‘yummy’ or ‘yucky.’ They completed their tailgate by watching a sausage race and singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

Lincoln STEM wants to show their true appreciation to educator and author Mary Tellefson and their amazing PTO by giving them another shout out! Lincoln STEM 4/5 students participated in a variety of simulations using technology to learn and build empathy for people with blindness. They learned how to properly guide a blind person, use a braille machine, decode the braille alphabet, and how to use their other four senses to learn about the world. A huge thank you to the Lincoln STEM PTO for funding a big autographed book give away! 📖
