As a class we are counting down the days until summer, the days until we will be in kindergarten, and approximately until Mrs. Folger's baby comes (which is more days than we have left of school). Each day will be a different activity. Check our Friday letter for the reminders. At the end of each day we will pop a ballon to see what tomorrow will be.
This init we are learning about animals. We are continuously working on farm animals. This week we finished learning about wild and zoo animals (wringing in a journal for our first time). Next week we will be learning about bugs/insects- also writing in journals.
Our farm has grown from just chicks and sheep to having pigs:
We learned about our last letter this week, Zz. The next few weeks we will be reviewing letter recognition and letter sounds. We will continue with adding this week (only numbers 0-5).
We have been preparing for Read Across America by reading Dr. Seuss books and activities.
Horton thought us that "a person is a person, no matter how small."
We measured our foot with cubes, paper clips, and a ruler after reading "The Foot Book."
For science and art we learned that water color paint will not "paint" on crayon. We colored and painted fish bowls for "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." We also graphed colored goldfish, but ate them for a snack.
"The Lorax" is teaching us how to care for our environment.
To celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday we read "Oobleck" and Mrs. Folder was able to catch some Oobleck that fell from the sky at her house yesterday. This is what we observed from touching the Oobleck:
After reading several Dr. Seuss books we colored book marks of our favorite and graphed our choices.
We ended our celebration with Cat in the Hat "hat" snacks, but that were delicious we ate them before I could take a picture. We had a fun Dr. Seuss, Read Across America Day!
