Five For First Friday In October

Happy Weekend!  I'm delighted to link up with Doodle Bugs for:

We had a visit from our favorite environmental and educational group - Change Is Simple.  (Click here to learn more about them).  They taught the kids about trees, and then they made homemade paper.  We have two pieces of homemade paper still drying in the classroom!

In Social Studies the kids need to be able to locate Massachusetts on a map.  This week we started USA and World Map rotations.  I have 2 World Map puzzles and 3 USA Map puzzles, and the groups will rotate until they finish the puzzles.  If they finish early, they can draw a picture of the completed puzzle:

In Math, we have started division!

We reviewed and practiced our vocabulary for Chapter 1 in Social Studies.  I like to include the words in our Morning Message:

We have just about completed our first Paragraph of the Week project. (Click here to read more about it).  The kids wrote about a trip whether it be to a friend's house or to Disney World.  I'm looking forward to seeing how their paragraphs turn out - that will have to wait until next week!

Have a wonderful weekend!
