Spiders

We read several books on spiders today.  The kids were shocked that spiders are not insects...they are arachnids 

We made spiders and graphed "Are spiders cool or creepy?"

Then we charted all the facts we learned about spiders! 


We made our own webs and wrote information on spiders.  




Bats!

We learned some interesting things about  bats! We illustrated our bat poem and then we read several books and charted the information we learned.  We them wrote some of the new facts we learned about bats. 











Team Up Against Drugs

We all supported our favorite teams today!

Silly Sock Day

Today is Silly Sock Day! 

Tall, Small, and Fall letters

We are really working on making sure our letters are placed on the line correctly. Some letters are Tall (b,d,f,h,k,t,) and some fall (j,p.,q,y) and the rest are small. 

As I flashed the letters on the board the students either jumped up for fall, squared down for small, or fell down for fall. 







Pumpkin Carving

Today we carved our pumpkin. First we decided which pumpkin face we would carve. Everyone drew their choice and we graphed to see which design would win. 

Next we drew on the cave and I began carving. 



Here is our finished product complete with a "snotty nose" 
They liked him like that 😊


Then we wrote about our pumpkin.
