Avid readers and egg testers

We read independently for over 10 minutes today!  Wow what avid readers!!
We also tested out our eggs.  We discovered that the vinegar had dissolved the shells and made the eggs very squishy.  After we felt them we wondered if they would bounce because they felt just like a bouncy ball.  What a day to test out our wonders!

Avid Readers, Measurement and the SMS Animal Hospital

We have been super busy in the Seal Class!  

We are learning about:

  • how to write How To books
  • becoming avid readers 
  • measuring and comparing measurements
  • how vinegar changes an egg shell
  • adding and subtracting numbers through 5
  • finding blends in our reading

Some activities we did:

  • did a draw along seal
  • measured each other with sticky notes
  • practiced math facts
  • put eggs in vinegar and observed the changes to the shell
  • built with dominoes
  • illustrated a spring poem for our poetry journals
  • started reading our first chapter book Fantastic Mr. Fox
  • turned our classroom into the SMS animal hospital complete with a make your own cast and bandage center
