Week 26 Letter Ii, short and long sound for i, star word 'for', TRANSPORTATION!

We just ZOOMED through another fantastic week!
(get it? it's our transportation week!)
Here's what happening at the O'Duggan's:
It's MAPLE SYRUP season!

Yep, that's a cloud in my kitchen! 
If you've ever wondered, it's about 1 gallon of sap to one HALF cup of syrup!
That's a lot of water to boil off! 


Here are a few pics from last week's fun on Friday:
We had a play presented by WSU students...
THE CAT IN THE HAT!



It was excellent!

We also had some winners for fitness fever!


And the slime and ooblek was a messy hit!
Both were science lessons.
Ooblek showed us the different forms of matter, liquid and solid or BOTH!
The slime was a chemical reaction.
Two compounds combining to make a new polymer! (a chain of molecules)
COOL BEANS!









We began our week with new Dr.Seuss morning challenges as we transition from that superb author to transportation!
(two great books send us on our way:
And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street and Oh, The Places You'll Go!)
