Eating with chopsticks is NOT easy!

We have been learning about the digraph "ch".  We brainstormed words that begin with ch.  We practiced sorting words that have "ch" and words that do not.  Our culminating activity was eating rice with chopsticks.  While it wasn't very easy, it was fun! (and entertaining!)  The kids loved it!

My Many Colored Days

In art and in our classroom we read the book My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss. 

We mixed primary colored cool whip to make secondary colors! 

Osmardo couldn't get enough!
Experimenting...What happens when you mix primary and secondary colors?

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!


Go! Go! Speed Racer!

100th Day of School

We read 100 books as a class!

Osmardo hard at work gluing 100 pennies.

Ms. Urban and Miss Lankey made it through 100 days of school! :)

Diana and Alaina making their 100th day snack.  !0 of 10 different foods.

After the 50th day of school, the kids expected something BIG for the 100th day.  It definitely wasn't as BIG but, we did do many projects.


 After a long, long process...our globes are finished!  It was the first time I had attempted the project as a whole class.  It was a LOT of work but worth it!  We hope you've enjoyed them at home.
