Exciting New Science Update!

Hello Families of Mr. Abbott's Class!

We had a pretty good week here at Yarmouth Elementary School.  We've been practicing our multiplication facts and learned an exciting new baseball math game.  We talked about the rocks we brought in for our geology unit and how we know that they are perfect.  We even created "rocks" using Epsom salts and container lids.  But I'm not going to tell you about that.  Instead, we have a panel of scientists available to tell you more about that:

Quite impressive, aren't they?  Photos were brought to you by our Class Photographer Paige and voice-overs can be quickly identified by your child!  Now that we know how easy it is to make "How-To" videos, expect to see (and hear) more of us soon!

We also had our first volunteer join us for Daily 5 literacy workshop on Thursday, please keep your eyes peeled on email inboxes for more opportunities soon!

Have a great weekend,


  1. Great how-to video... Well done!

  2. I was so impressed by your "How To" Video that I posted on our Yarmouth Student Showcase blog at
