The children have read books, talked about fish, looked at the colors of fish, and even gotten a new class pet!
We wanted the children to have fun drawing while experiencing the movement of fish, so we put our paper behind the projection of fish swimming!
Look how much the children enjoyed this part of our project…………..
Everyday we use our big calender to help us remember what day of the week it is, the month, date and year!
We start from the beginning of the month and count to the day we are at…
Then, each day,a different student gets to go up to the calender and cross that day out! We love this part! 😉
Since we have shown interest in the weather, we are tracking it everyday in class.
During the day we sit outside as a class and discuss what we see, hear, and feel. We write and draw what we observe on a piece of paper.
(Look at this drawing of sun and all of the rain we had today!)
Once we come back to the classroom, one of us draws the weather for the class on the chalkboard!
Our writing and drawing skills have really improved. This is a daily activity we do. Come check out our work being displayed in the classroom!

“The ninjas would throw dust and smoke than run away to make it look like they did magic!”
I began a conversation where I told them about ninjas also doing magic tricks too! They were soo shocked and excited. We talked about one particular magic trick that they reenacted for each other to see!
