Ocean Zones

We've been learning ALL about the ocean zones this week!  Please forgive me for not being able to post pictures of our activities.  We are having technological difficulties with SD cards at the moment.  As soon as the problem has been resolved I will post all of our pictures you've missed!

In the mean time, I hope you will watch this video clip from Disney's Octonauts television series!  It deals with the Midnight Zone of the ocean!  Enjoy!
Most respectfully,

Pete the Cat!

This week we've had SO MUCH FUN with my favorite feline, Pete the Cat!  Check out our glyphs and I've posted some links and videos so that you can enjoy Pete at home!
This activity is from Mrs. Jump!

We have them hanging in our classroom AND in the gallery hall! 

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes

Visit Harper Collins website for ALL of Pete's books.  You can download ALL of the songs and there is even a page with activities!  SO NEAT! :)

Have a great weekend!

The Water Cycle

Last week we learned ALL about the Water Cycle!  The kids really grasped the concept and even those difficult vocabulary words!  We constructed a diagram to hang in our classroom, filled in a diagram for our fact book and made water cycle bracelets!  Check it all out...
Hyunie cut the cloud for condensation.

Kadarious stuffed the clouds.

Grace helped make the sun.

Avery helped stuff the sun.

Moses cut out triangles for the sun's rays.

Emily worked on raindrops.

Lily helped with the raindrops.

Hunter helped stuff the raindrops.

They are so proud!

The evaporation crew came up with this shiny, twirly fabric we had out in the pod! 

Hanging up (without labels)

Avery is stringing her water cycle bracelet.


We strung the beads and made a sheet to represent each color to go in our fact book!
