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.

We had a delightful visit from author Heidi Stemple:


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!


We continue to work on multiplication, division and some place value.  Mrs. Perry and Mrs. Borselli love my anchor charts so much that they made their own to keep for reference in the Resource Room:


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:




Gabi couldn't wait to wade into the water with the little kids!  I don't think she was expecting to lap up salt water - even if it looked pretty tempting!


Our progress reports go home next Friday so I've been working on those.  Next week is our 6th week of school - it seems like we've been in school for so much longer, but on the other hand, the time has flown by.



This picture was taken on Nantucket last summer - I just love the quote!

Have a wonderful week!
