Shape Exploration and a Little Science Experiment!

I hope your week is off to a great start! We are assessing like crazy this week, so it's that challenging time of trying to keep the kiddos engaged as much as possible without them (and us!) getting bogged down with assessments. Here's what we've been up to...

We've been writing personal narratives about a time when we were injured! I didn't snap pictures yet, but you can click below for the unit!


We also measured ourselves next to our friends and wrote about who was taller or shorter. Due to the odd number of students in my class, I was one little Who's partner. Check out her picture! She even drew Jace! :)

We are also working very hard on our 2D shapes. We went on a shape hunt in the classroom!

Can you fill a circle using squares? How about using other shapes?

 They loved this exploration time!

Of course we have been working on our sight words and rockin' our sight word hats! (click below to go to the resource!)
 We also introduced our new -in Word Family this week! On Monday, we talked about -in word family words, found them in our emergent reader, and today the students completed an independent sort!

After reading about and discussing our teeth so far this week, we began a little science experiment today! We talked about how an egg relates to our teeth. We also talked about being scientists and making a hypothesis, or prediction, about what will happen when we place an egg in water, soda, and vinegar overnight.
 Needless to say, their predictions ranged from right on to a little imaginative :)
Don't forget to load your wish lists for the TpT sale this Thursday and Friday!
