Today, Mrs. Brown and Ms. Rebecca came to teach us about white tail deer. We began with a fun puppet show. Then we got to investigate a deer skull, hoof, antlers and fur. We got to weigh 2.5 lbs of twigs to see how much a deer needs to eat in a day. We played a fun game to learn about deer and their environment and what happens if there is not enough twigs (pretzels) for all the deer. We learned a lot!

Today in Science, we had the opportunity to experiment with inclined planes. We used cardboard, books, chair and tables to build our ramps. Then we used balls and cars to test them out. Our goal was to get the ball or car into a cup. We changed the height of the plane to see what would happen. We tried on the carpet and smooth floor. We learned a lot and had fun too!

Today we played a fun game to learn more about how levers work. We used a paint stirring stick, a block as a fulcrum and a pom pom to launch.

We had a very fun day together. Our day began with discovering that some leprechauns must have visited our classroom. They knocked over chairs, mixed up and hid numbers from our number chart, made the toilet water green, left prints around the classroom and left us gold coins and shamrock necklaces!

We are learning about force and motion, specifically pushes and pulls. Today we did some experimenting with a large tote.
We learned that it was easier to push our friend in the tote on the linoleum floor than it was on the rug. This is because there is less friction.
When we got there, we each helped to carry the food down the stairs and put it on the table. Then Rebecca Price taught us about what will happen to all of the food. Each person that comes to the food shelf gets a bag filled with food for about 3 days. Each bag has a dozen eggs, spaghetti sauce, macaroni and cheese, toilet paper and much more.
Then, we got to play at the wonderful park in our town! You can just see the pure joy on their happy faces!
