Quack! Quack! Quack!

Our ducks hatched today! It was so exciting. We were able to use an ELMO and a projector and show the duck hatching on the wall so everyone could see. The second duck hatched shortly afterward. It took all day for the third duck to hatch, but now we have 3 healthy ducks in our pod. We are still waiting for our chicks to hatch. They have about 2 weeks left in the incubator.

This Week!

We had lots going on this week. We continued our unit on Texas- we read lots of good books and did lots of fun things with them. We worked on telling time and subtraction. We also measured play-doh snakes with links and made comparisons. We got a new incubator this week. We added chicken eggs to it on Wednesday. We hope we will be able to hatch chicks this time. We ate chili on Monday and had a hot dog lunch on Friday. Our pride rally performance went great! Everyone did a super job!

Life Cycle Patterns

This week, we talked about patterns. We looked at patterns in animal life cycles.

We used Pixie to create pictures for the life cycle of the chicken and the frog. We put the pictures in a flow map to show the way the animals grow and change.




We read the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar and made butterfly life cycles on paper plates.

The Wind Blew

This week, we talked about spring. We learned about what types of clothing you wear in spring, what kinds of activities people do in spring, and what the weather is like in the spring. We learned that spring can bring very windy weather. We made a circle map to show all that we learned about spring.

This week, we read the book The Wind Blew by Pat Hutchins. It is a great book for making predictions. Afterwards, the students brainstormed other things that the wind could blow.








Making Words

This week, we used our bodies to make words. We reviewed words from the at, an, ap, and am families. We started working with words from the ed and et families.
