After years of trying to make a "fancy" focus board, I ended up handwriting and velcroing the subject areas and learning goals right onto the wall.  Check out the finished product:

If you go to the Komodo dragon's natural habitat in Indonesia, you can pay upwards of $500 to see them OR you can go to the Bronx Zoo!  Check out this Komodo dragon on exhibit there:

We bought the All Access Tickets and enjoyed the Butterfly Garden, the Congo Gorilla Forest, the Asian Monorail and Dinosaur Safari.  It was an amazing day and adventure!  It's a definite Best Zoo!



Mealworm Metamorphosis

Here's an example of the exciting world of third grade!  We have mealworms that we observe to see how they grown and change.  This year we even got a beetle:

I've also learned that the mealworms prefer the carrots from the school cafeteria vs. the apples. 

If you're intrigued by mealworms, click here to learn more!  You can even buy 100 0f them at Petco for $3.49! 
 
On that exciting note, I'm off for my nightly shower.  As always, thank you so much for visiting the blog!  Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Congratulations to you, your husband, Andrew, & Angelika! I went to the Bronx Zoo more than 20 years ago and loved it. Thanks for sharing the ICKY but fascinating meal worm photos! This IS the year I'm finally going to REALLY DO IT. I'm going to bring some meal worms into the classroom. Really. Thanks for sharing the link. Have a wonderful week!
