I keep promising myself that I'll be on time for these link-ups, but going Back to School takes up A LOT of time so I'm always trying to catch up.  At least I'm finally linking up with Doodle Bugs for:

We had our first visit from Change Is Simple which is a wonderful non-profit group who teaches our third to fifth graders about the environment.  On Friday, Hannah and Danielle from Change Is Simple visited and taught us about trees.  Here are the kids as "seeds:"





Then the kids grew into trees:




Finally, the kids got to make homemade paper:

On Friday we also shared our Me Museums with the other third grade classes.  Here are some samples:

 Friday was an exceptionally busy day because we also had Book Buddies for the first time with our friends in Mrs. Murphy's kindergarden class.


 
During our Morning Meeting, the kids have been thinking of some questions for us to share.  Tayla suggested, "What is your favorite thing to do with your family?" while Liam asked, "What is your favorite sport?"  I love when the kids help out like this!

 


We also reviewed a book as a class:


We watched and read the book together on the interactive whiteboard, and the kids took very detailed notes as well as noted every detail on every page.  They took their jobs very seriously.  I'll be doing an entire post on our book review of this book shortly.

It's time for me to finish the "rest" of my laundry, cleaning, correcting, preparing,...This afternoon I'm going to a pet painting party to raise money for Paws 4 a Cure.  

Thanks for checking in today!

  1. The "Me Museum" seems so much fun! I will definitely incorporate this next year during the first weeks of school. I am already at week 6 ... going into week 7.
