This morning we had 2 friends bring in their bunnies. Logic was very shy and didn't want to come out of his crate. Thumper was not shy at all and enjoyed walking around the rug to meet the class. She proved she was living by leaving a little something on our rug.

We had fun doing our Fundations work today! We used letter puzzles to match the letter with a picture of a word that begins with that letter sound. Some of us used our letter boards and tiles to make words. We practiced our magic skills and changed some words by just changing one letter! Sad became mad and bad and then bed. Wow!

The class was so excited today to have a science lesson in the hallway! First, we each drew a picture of a living thing and a nonliving thing. Then we all went to the hallway to sort our items. We put all of the living things on the tree and all of the nonliving things on the rock. We had some great discussions. Are bananas and strawberries living things? We decided that they used to be living. Are clouds living things? What do you think?
This morning, we had a visit from our big partners. We were able to have "Choice time" with them. We did many different activities - created at the art table, played with the kitchen, played with Legos, trains, the dollhouse, play-doh and the sand table. I think the 3/4 students miss choice time.

We had an awesome visit from Mrs.Brown and Miss Rebecca today for Four Winds. We learned about how animals stay warm in the winter. We intently watched a puppet show about mice and other animals. Then we did an awesome Science experiment. We had 4 jars of hot water (99 degrees). We used different materials to insulate the jars and had one control jar that we did not insulate. We made a hypothesis or prediction that the woolwould keep the water the warmest - we thought it would be the wool. It turned out to be the feathers -the water in that jar was 84.2 degrees. Then we found some awesome animal tracks in the snow and played a really fun matching game to learn what some animals do in the winter to stay warm. It was an awesome science exploration time!
