Week 30 Letter Xx, star word 'said', WEATHER!

Wow! What a colorful week!
We wrapped up some rainbow work before heading straight into the weather unit.

Here are some good reads about 
RAINBOWS:

Isn't this fun? 
One of the kiddos asked how we could take a picture of what they see through our rainbow makers. So we held it up to the lens of my camera! Cool!


 We gathered data for our graph...





We also reviewed the seasons...

Here's a few more family projects!


 Love love love!

Here is Mrs. Sauers sorting seasonal objects with us...

Mrs. Benke was helping us to journal about  our favorite season, look for the Lucky Duck book soon!

 On Tuesday we learned about the WIND!
We had to take turns huffing and puffing objects to see how many breaths it took to move them to the end.


 Fun!  
 We also generated ideas about the wind...
Good or Bad or BOTH?
 Tuesday's Centers included:
Rainbow addition to 10...

We also played with this cool tool to create rainbows on the walls and ceiling and our papers!
