The children have made outstanding progress in writing this year. I therefore had no doubt that they would be able to independenty plan, organize and create AMAZING non-fiction posters about Honey Bees. They worked incredibly hard over several days and are now super excited to share them with you on Demo Day.
After learning about the jobs of different honey bees, we transformed into Worker Bees last Friday! We travelled from flower to flower in our classroom. We drank delicious nectar and spread our Cheeto pollen on the flowers of our friends!
We have had so much fun learning about Guatemalan culture this week. We created some incredible stories set at their annual kite festival for All Saints Day and had our own parade of kites!
Sometimes the negative things that happen in our day stick with us more than the positive things so we decided to change that! Here we are sharing today's 2 Stars and a Wish...2 things we achieved today and one thing we'd like to improve upon for tomorrow.
This week the children attended NASA training camp and then wrote letters of application. They were interviewed by General Wilson and Captain Sontag...they were overwhelmed by the quality of the applications and we all got approved! Great job guys!!
The children have been thoroughly enjoying our unit about the Solar System... Ask them about The Sun, Earth, Moon or Mars and they will have lots to tell you. We are beginning to learn about the other planets now too. In addition, they have a wealth of knowledge about Asteroids, Meteorides and Comets- let them show off what they know! I couldn't be prouder of the language they are able to use :) Well done guys!
To kick off our new EFS unit about Reducing, Reusing and Recycling, we watched a silly video about Mrs. Davison and her plastic bag. We were super excited to visit King Soopers, choose our bag, give it a name and bring it to life! Back at school we played with our bags, showed them around and then learned how to braid strips of plastic bag into jewelry!
We were learning about Norman the slug who wanted to be a snail. We him shell from doughnuts, pennies, eyeballs, avocados and pumpkins to name just a few...and then had a doughnut party ourselves!
