We were busy learners in Room 108 this week! Here are a few of the things we did:
It was Earth Week central in first grade! We used the fabulous Amy Lemon’s Earth Day Craftivity Unit to create Dirt Pudding. We took notes on our steps as we created the dirt pudding. The following day, we turned these notes into explanatory writing pieces. Yum!
Whew! I’m glad it’s the weekend. This past week was a bit exhausting. Next week, we have a field trip on Wednesday. Yay! The best part of a field trip is, of course, getting to wear jeans in the middle of the week. (
and the life experience and real world learning that takes place for the kids, of course.) The worst part for me is riding the bus. I get such horrible motion sickness in cars, buses, trains, spaceships – you name it. I’ll be making a trip to to the store in a bit to pick up some Dramamine to be prepared. We’re going to a museum. This week in guided reading, we read a lot of nonfiction books. During each book, one kid would ultimately say “We’re probably going to see one of these at the museum next week.” I’m counting on a few kids being disappointed on Wednesday. We’re NOT going to be see a real live dinosaur, an astronaut, or an entire group of elephants at this particular museum.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to find out what we did this week!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
