|We invited Ms. Blanchard's class in to see the chicks|
|D.K looks into the incubator|
|There is one of the yellow chicks and if you can see closely-the black chick is coming out of its egg|
|K.W looks into the incubator|
|T.D looks into the incubator|
|J.C looks into the incubator|
|The two chicks|
|J.A looks into the incubator|
|We came up with name suggestions for the chicks|
We had another student in our class recite the pledge of allegiance over the loudspeaker to the whole school! T.S did a wonderful job with the pledge and we are all so proud of him. Check out the following clip of him doing the pledge of allegiance!
We got to talk about measuring today! We started off talking about why we measure and measuring tools. A bunch of students mentioned tape and a ruler! We looked at the different tools and we learned that when we measure, we can find out the size of something! We learned how to measure with small blocks. This is actually an activity I've done with my previous kindergarten classes and I was so impressed with how great our class handled the task! They were excited and measured properly with the nonstandard units! They were also great at working in partnerships! Working with their partners, they had to trace each other's foot. Following this, they used the blocks to see how long their feet were in blocks! The students also learned that when we measure, it's important to go from one end to the other end.
|T.D models using the blocks to measure|
|D.K writes how many blocks the foot is (8)|
|J.A traces T.D's foot|
|T.W traces X.I's foot|
|T.S traced A.K's foot|
|O.B traces K.M's foot|
|D.K traces G.A's foot|
|T.W counts how many blocks her feet is|
|O.B's foot measured 7 small blocks!|
|A.K's foot also measured 7 small blocks|
|D.K counting how many blocks his foot is|
Thank you to all the families that came out for the junior science expo to support our students' science fair project! Many other teachers stopped and told me how wonderful the chick house was and I was proud of all the hard work the students put into it. If you didn't get a chance to see it-I'll have it out in our classroom for next week!

T.S also brought in a science experiment he conducted at home! He wanted to see which magnet would collect the most paper clips!
|T.S' poster board|
|Photos of his experiment|
|He also created a bar graph!|
|Here he is explaining his project to Mr. Flynn|
Hope everyone is enjoying their day off! Check back to see an update of the classroom chicks!
