Last Friday we were lucky enough to have Miss Emily from the Lyon County Conservation Office come talk to us about migration, hibernation and active animals during the winter months.  She always has lots of information and presents it in such a fun way!  WE LOVE MISS EMILY!


To wrap up our letter W learning, I brought in some WORMS!  We learned about worms and read a couple of stories that were informational and then of course, we had to read a couple of funny stories about worms.

Everyone got their own worm to touch, hold and wrap around their fingers....




or in the case of some of the kids... to LOOK at and squeal and touch quickly!! :)

Our snack for the day was making "dirt" (chocolate pudding topped with oreos) and "worms" (gummy worms).


Friday Science Days are always some of my favorite days.  The kids' squeals, apprehensions, bold moves, excitement... really- some days I can't believe they pay me for this job!  :)

Wednesday we tackled the letter X!  X makes the sound of two swords (our pointer fingers) clashing- making an X, and making the sound of KS.  We practiced listening for the sound of X at the end of words.  We even WROTE the words of pictures on a page we did!  It is so awesome to see the kids progress to this stage!  I am VERY proud of them!

We learned quite a bit about bones because X-RAY is one of the few words that starts with the letter X.  We read about bones and even had a visitor from the HS Science room visit us!!  We named him SKELLY (nickname for Skeleton someone decided) and looked him over really well.  We learned that some bones are hooked by joints so that we can bend and move and that if we didn't have bones, we would just be big blobs of skin!! :)  We learned that some bones protect squishy parts of our bodies like our brains, heart and lungs and that we have 206 bones!
We played a game of X MARKS THE SPOT on Skelly and had to find some easy bones and then some more obscure bones and joints.  ANKLES is often one that trips us up a bit and spine was another.

We sorted in math on Wednesday.  We sorted several different ways including by color, size, shape and thickness!  We are sorting WIZARDS!!!
