Thank you for your help!

Avocado Ripening

We have been recording information about what conditions cause fruit to ripen more quickly.  We used 5 avocados and placed them in various places with other fruits.  We learned that when fruits ripen, they give off ethelyne gas that causes fruits and vegetables around them to ripen more quickly.

After our avocados ripened, we used them to make guacamole.  We graphed our opinions.  Most of us liked it….a few did not.
Next week we will begin growing & observing our avocado pits.

Great Start!

This school year is off to a great start!  We have had a wonderful first two days of school.  I am enjoying getting to know everyone and seeing them become more comfortable in their new class.  There was a permission slip sent home in your child’s binder today.  This will give me permission to include pictures/video of them on our class blog.  

We had a couple of friends bring their All About Me bags to class today.  We all had a great time learning about them, and can’t wait to learn more about everyone else also.

Thank you for sharing your sweet children with me this year!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  I am so very thrilled to begin this school year.  I can’t wait to meet all of my new students and families at Meet the Teacher Thursday evening from 4:00 to 5:00.  Please come, bring your child’s supplies, and help them get ready to start this school year.  We are going to have an amazing year!

We have had a wonderful few weeks learning all about recycling and how it can help our environment.  Here are all of the technology presentations that were shown this morning, just in case you were not able to attend and see what your child has been working on.  They have done a wonderful job!

Week 27

We had a great week!  We are busy learning all about recycling and helping our planet.  Our field trip to the landfill was a huge success.  The kids are very excited about our recycling unit.  Today we learned about the different density of various liquids by making a “density rainbow.”  It was a blast!
