This week is FCAT testing for grades 3-5, so there are lots of schedule changes this week...which is great because I have extra time with my little friends to do some extra fun activities!
We are loving studying plants. We have learned all about flowers and the parts of a flower. We finished up our models of a flower yesterday and started learning that trees are a kind of plant too. It is perfect timing for Earth Day! We read lots of nonfiction books about trees today and tomorrow we are going on a tree walk and will do a leaf rubbing! Maybe we will even get to do a fun painting activity to learn about the parts of a tree...we will see how much time we have! :)
We have been reading all about taking care of our Earth for Earth Day. The kids have so many questions, especially about recycling. I even had to look up the answers to three of their questions today! I love how curious they are...at least I know they are listening! Yay!
During ELA centers we are having fun with Earth Day too!
The kids will be responsible for making this little craftivity at the writing center tomorrow too! I showed them an example today and they came up with amazing ideas!
Oh my I almost forgot...how could I forget the BEST part...I am so excited to help Regina at Kinder Krazy celebrate 100 followers! Yay!! Head on over to her blog and join her giveaway...you could win so many great prizes from lots of talented teachers!
I hope that you are having a fantastic week!
