Help! We have been invaded! !

We have been invaded by aliens wearing underpants! !! We read the two books called Aliens Love Underpants and Aliens in Underpants Save the World. We discussed how these books are the same and different.  Then they created aliens in Underpants and wrote about their aliens.  They did an awesome job !!

An entomologist visits!

We had an awesome visit from Entomologist Jess from Royal Pest Control. The kids got to see bugs in glass cases and an amazing slide show about bugs. 
The kids loved it!  They asked wonderful questions and showed just how smart they were about bugs.
They also got to eat bug shaped cookies.
We can listen to Entomologist Jess on WDSD 94.7 on  Friday Mornings at 8:30.
Thank you Royal Pest Control!!!

The King of ing

We learned about the king of ing today.  We made crowns and king of ings.  The students lived wearing the king hat and making new words! 


We read the zoo mystery called Stickler On Stilts. I read to them the first three clues and then they had to think what the mystery animal was.  They then drew what they thought.  After we talked about what they thought it was,  I read the rest of the book.  They loved it!

We then made a can,  have,  are chart that I got from a unit by Kim Adsit!

The facts they remembered were awesome!

We then made our own flamingos! They came out really cute! !!
