Happy 100th Day!

Today was our 100th day of school!  We've been so busy with 100th day activities!  Here is a picture walk through our day!
We started with a "Dots to 100" sheet where they had to draw 10 dots in each circle to make 100 in all!

Zehra and Liberty working!

Charlesha and Andy

Brenden and Quin

Next we filled in the missing numbers all the way to 100!

Nathan, Levi, Angel, Marcus, and Abby

We also made 100 Fruit Loop necklaces!  We counted 10 sets of 10 Fruit Loops and then laced them onto yarn!




Our last activity (we did a lot, didn't we) was to make 100th Day headbands! :)

Catfish and Homophones!

First let me start with homophones!  Last week we read all about homophones, located them, defined them, etc.  We ended the week with a chart on "Tracking Homophones!" 
Today we finished our research on catfish!  I know many of you probably think CATFISH!?!?!  As you know the children voted for them!  The sad thing is that almost ALL fish books have one small picture of a catfish, but that is it!  We did most of our research online!

We also had to see who has/has not eaten catfish before!  The kids desperately want to have a fish fry when we are all done with constructing...we will see! :)

Sweet Christian and his family brought us REAL, LIVE catfish to live in our aquarium today as well!  The kids were SO exicted to see them and our Science center has been jam-packed all day! :)
Thank you Christian!!!

We also had another very special treat--Mrs. Folmar, our assistant principal, brought us a REAL (mounted) fish to explore!  The kids LOVED it!
Thank you Mrs. Folmar!!!!

We will begin constructing our catfish and habitat tomorrow!
Have a great week!

The After-Christmas Tree

On Tuesday we read The After-Christmas Tree by Linda Wagner Tyler.  It is a sweet book about taking your old Christmas tree, decorating it with edible items, and setting it outside for the critters! 
We took pinecones, covered them in peanut butter, and rolled them in birdseed!

When we were all finished we took them outside to hang them! 

Happy Friday!

Martin Luther King Jr. Part II

We've spent a good part of our week learning all we can about Dr. King!  Last year I stumbled upon the best Martin Luther King book I've seen!  We have read and re-read the book sevearl times, it's become an old favorite!

We even learned a song honoring Dr. King and performed it in music!  We hope you enjoy!  Thank you Mrs. H for videoing and sharing it with us! :)

Have a wonderful Thursday!
