Five For The Last Friday In October!

How did October go by in the blink of an eye?  Any way, it's time to link up with Doodle Bugs for:



This week we worked on the Water Cycle in Science.  It was a perfect week to study the Water Cycle because it rained all week and a meteorologist from a local TV station came to talk to all the students:



We were even on TV!  



The kids and I also reviewed the most adorable book, Ten Thankful Turkeys by Angela Muse:


I'll be writing an entire blog post to share our thoughts shortly.



We worked on learning about the setting of a story.  Then we compared the settings of two different books by the same author, Kevin Henkes.  We compared Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse and Wemberly Worried.  The kids brought their notebooks to the rug while I read the book.  During that time, they took notes about the setting.  After we had read both books, we made Venn diagrams to compare/contrast the settings.




We've been sharing our interviews with each other.  In addition to writing about the other student, each student had to draw a picture which came out amazing.  Plus, the writing and pictures look so colorful on the bulletin in the room:

This interview was done by Danielle about Matthew.

This interview was done by Andrew about Tayla.





In Social Studies, we worked on big maps of Massachusetts (thanks to Mrs. Brown for making these).  The kids had to locate geographic features such as the highest point in Massachusetts - it's Mt. Greylock!


Check out Kylee's beautiful map!

That's it for now.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
