Morning Messages!

I like to share my Morning Messages on the blog so you can see what we focused on last week and also to give you ideas for your own Morning Messages:


We enjoyed a busy week of science learning about the states of matter and how to make paper with Change is Simple.

Change is Simple and Making Paper!

Speaking of Change is Simple, click here to read more about this non-profit group of scientists who visit school and spread the important message of keeping the Earth clean through recycling and caring for our environment.  Check out the kids making paper:


In addition to making paper, the kids learned about different kinds of trees and their seeds.

Our Favorite Guest Reader!

Aedyn's father came in to guest read:


He read this fun book, Runny Babbit by Shel Silverstein (click here to read more on Amazon).  The kids enjoyed figuring out their "Runny Babbit" names.

Delightful Division

We worked really hard in Math learning our nine times facts and continuing on with division.  Also, we read several word problems to decide when to multiply or divide. 




Keeping your mind focused when reading.

I made my first anchor chart using this book:

Click on the book to read more at Amazon.
Here's the anchor chart from the book:


I recreated this anchor chart and discussed with the kids as we do Read to Self after small group work in the afternoon.  The biggest difference is the brain - I didn't even attempt to draw that! 

If you have a chance to check out this book, it's well worth your time!

Happy Columbus Day Weekend!
