Monday we were all about VOLCANOES!  We read a story that had several real photos in it of active volcanoes and we watched a video of an actual volcano with the lava running down the side of the mountain into the ocean in Hawaii.  In the video we saw a couple of people that had gone beyond a rope that was to keep them safe.  Some of us were VERY worried that they had not followed the rules and it was only for their own safety! :)
We learned the different parts of the volcano as we made a large volcano on paper.  The magma chamber (magma is the lava before it is out of the volcano), the vent, the lava and the ash cloud. And then it was time for some experimenting!
We made our own volcanoes with baking soda and vinegar and of course, a drop of red food coloring.  SO FUN!!


Wednesday we worked on our Valentine bags, read a story called THE LOVE MONSTER and did an emergent reader with colors and the LOVE MONSTER!  :)  We practiced writing numbers using a tally sheet to match monsters with numbers and recorded our answers.

DON'T FORGET TO SEND VALENTINES ON MONDAY!  IT WILL BE PARTY DAY!!! :)
20 students are in our classroom!  Just have kiddos sign their names in the "from" spot and then they can just drop them in the bags on their own when they get to school!

WEDNESDAY: Snack: Ellie  MUSIC
FRIDAY: Early dismissal 11:40  NO BREAKFAST OR LUNCH SERVED  SNACK: Mrs. T  PE
