The picture on the blog cover is us on the first day of TK! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?? Such little punkins! UGH!
This week we said goodbye to our favorite Monday helper, Mrs. Moen!
We worked on the letter A this week. We started it last week with the a-a achoo sound like when we sneeze and this week we learned about ANTS! We learned some fun facts about ants and also got to see ants as I brought in an ant farm. It's a new fangled sort of ant farm with a gel of some kind. The tunnels are super cool to see and we enjoyed watching them move around.
Friday, for our SCIENCE DAY, we learned about fossils, dinosaurs and PALEONTOLOGY! Our go to science teacher, Mrs. Stai, has a bucket of petrified wood, cow bones and fossils (of mostly shells) that I borrowed and we got to pass them around, hold and examine them!
We had fun making our own fossils using some plastic creatures we have in our room in tubs using our Play Dough.
Our afternoon we transformed into paleontologists, and worked and worked (and worked) on freeing a bug from ice. Paleontologists have to be very patient as they brush, scrub and pick at the bones and fossils they find. We did the same. Everyone got a block of ice with a bug in it, a toothbrush, a container of water and an eye dropper and we set off to discover what each of us had frozen in the ice!
