Oh, my goodness!  Did you hear we got a new student?  His name is Corey and he is an awesome addition to our spectacular class!
Welcome, Corey!

Week 28 Letter Dd, star word 'was', BUNNIES, EGGS, and CHICKS!

What a wonderfully crazy week!
We began by finishing up St.Patrick's Day Morning Challenges:
Missing Number...
 Backwards Numeric Order...

Backwards ABC Order...

Our snack was LUCKY CHARMS but first we had to predict and graph! 

We painted a STILL LIFE...just like an artist!
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE our pussywillow paintings!

 It is hard to see, the poem goes like this:
I have a little kitty,
And her coat is silver gray,
And she lives down in the meadow,
And she never runs away.
She'll always be a kitty,
She'll never be a cat,
Because she is a PUSSY WILLOW!
Now what do you think of that?

The kids had to write in the star words that were missing and focus on capitalizing the beginning letter of each sentence.

We also had a chick and egg project!


This week we learned two amazing science words:
They simply mean egg laying or not!

 Here is our graph as we sorted 
We also created a lucky duck book coming home soon!

On Tuesday we created these cutie patotie
DUCK-RABBIT projects! 

 Tuesday afternoon we were treated to 
the ZOOMOBILE from Minnesota Zoo!

Wednesday we had new morning challenges:
Real word/silly word sorting...

bdpq sorting...
Bunny greater than work...

Here's our birthday girl this week!
We rearranged our schedule with the snow storm bearing down on us for the end of the week. We made these cutie for you!
