Happy Holidays

Hi everyone!
Our class has had a very busy three weeks learning more about fables and fairy tales.  We worked on ideas regarding what we can learn when we read  "The Little Red" (Friends should help each other), "The Three Little Pigs" (build your house out of something stronger than straw) and "The Gingerbread Man"(Foxes can be tricky!)

This week we enjoyed catching and eating a gingerbread man! Thank you to Tara for the organizing of the decorating and all the parents who cam and helped or donated supplies...

 Today we enjoyed We Care sports assembly

and watched a sweet little movie called the Tangerine Bear - a movie about friendship and what it means to be a family.

I am touched by your generous gift this season - your children are amazing and I wish you all a lovely, a restful break!

More insects ideas!

Hi everyone! We are continuing to add to our understanding of insects..this week we learned that the mealworms were the larva of darkling beetles! So we explored the mealworm life cycle.
We also learned more about how insects protect themselves from predators - we researched ideas then created a poster and project.

Earlier in the week we made some cute turkey art using different kinds of lines...

We have had a busy week and are working hard to wrap up our final insect projects. See you soon!

A quick update

We had another busy week learning about insects enjoying this wonderful fall weather.
We also had a fantastic time with our third grade buddy classroom who taught us how to fold "fortune tellers".  They were so patient and kind - it was a magical moment.
Enjoy some pictures - the kids were having a great time with the fall leaves, proving that some of the best things in life are free....
