We took our Thursday free writing time outside this week. We were inspired by Peter H. Reynolds and his book ...ish with still life illustrations.

Mr. Hervey (Brendan's Grandpa) was our mystery reader this week. The children enjoyed learning all about farm life.

Thank you to the Roberd's family for donating a new game to our classroom. As you can tell it's been a big hit. 

This week we read Ten Black Dots by Donald Crews and created pictures using ten black dots. Make sure to take a minute and check out our pictures hanging up in the cubby area.

We read Color Farm by Lois Ehlert and used this book as inspiration to create illustrations using different shape cut outs.

We read Germs Are Not For Sharing by Elizabeth Verdick and did a glitter germ experiment. We found that washing our hands with soap and water got rid of all the glitter (germs) on our hands.
