Eggs- March 22

This week we are so "Egg-cited." We will decide what comes from eggs, what doesn't.

We will use hard boiled eggs (for my sanity) to do some experiments. Such as floating/sinking, size, and weight against different items.

This was our Egg Graffiti wall:
We write down every letter of the alphabet and using books, the children try to find a theme word for each letter.

Seuss Book Study

Our Cat in the Hat glyph. Next our "Ticket to Leave" was to name a character from a Dr. Seuss book.
We did a Seuss book study. I used a sheet that the student had write the title down, the date read, and 3 hats. As a group we decided what each hat would mean. Like stars from the movies. 1 hat stood for an okay book, 2 star stood for good, and three hats (the highest) was awesome.

Water Cycle- March 15th

Topic: Water Cycle

I have tons of materials that I got from the California Water Department. It includes printed materials, posters and a DVD. The student's LOVED this DVD, they were actually glued very intently to it, amazing! This is the only video I have showed myself, but they have watched others from other staff members.
This paper turns into a booklet when you fold in half and cut on the dotted line.
