It's time to link up with Doodle Bugs for:
This week we started learning about matter and physical properties. We did an experiment in which the kids observed a variety of objects like a key, a coin, gimp....Here a picture:
I gave them each a magnifying glass so they could look even more closely at each object.
Before the assembly we read Owl Moon by Jane Yolen who is Heidi's mother. Heidi was also the little girl who goes owling in the book.
At the assembly, the author shared information about her family and home; how she writes books; how long it takes to get a book published,...
We had an amazing author visit with Heidi Stemple. thanks to our very generous PTO!
I'm so honored!
Last Monday - the real Columbus Day - was my birthday. I went apple picking with my family and took Gabi the Dog to the beach:

This picture was taken on Nantucket last summer - I just love the quote!
Have a wonderful week!
