Neighborhood Walk

BEFORE OUR WALK…

 

What do you think we’ll see?

 

Luciana: We’ll see a stop sign, a bus sign, and a blue sign.

Samantha: And we’ll see a bus!

Luciana: And we saw a dog because people always like dogs.

Sophia: Then the walk sign. Like there’s two people on a walk.

 

AS WE LEAVE TO WALK…

 

Antonella: I see my papa. *points to construction worker who is helping to build houses next to our school*

 

Ian: I see two signs. *Hawkins crossroads signs*

 

LIMOSINE…

 

Mattiw: 10 people can fit in it.

Samantha: 6!!!

Kal: You get in it and you drive it. It has 3 sides.

Sophia: It has food!

CHIRPING BIRD NEXT TO SIDEWALK…

 

Luciana: He’s hurt so he’s not flying. Is he bleeding?

Emily: *imitates the bird’s chirp… very accurately*

Kal: That dinosaur can get help from the other dinosaurs.

 

CONTINUING ON…

 

Mattiw: The ‘P’ car. Has a ladder for the house.

 

Ian: Look at the bird flying by the car!

 

Mattiw: It’s an apple!

 

Do we want trash in our neighborhood?

Group: NO!!!

 

THE ‘BLUE SIGN’…

 

Emily: It’s the blue sign.

Samantha & Luciana: ‘L’.

Samantha: And ‘I’.

WE CONTINUE…

 

Mattiw: The yellow sign. It means the cars have to pass. I see a police sign!

 

Samantha: This one has a number for a phone call.

Why numbers?

FIRE STATION AND SIGNS…

 

Vinny: A station for the firefighters.

Mattiw: Police Sign.

Luciana: It’s a fire trip! The brown thing is when the sounds go off. The sounds maybe turn on then they come off. Then they drive to the houses and put the water on!

Sophia: It’s by my sister’s school down that way!

 

ANOTHER SIGN WITH NUMBERS…

 

Camila: That’s money. 5 dollars.

Kal: It’s to go get toys! (thinking garage sale?)

SOME MORE SIGNS + PAVEMENT MARKINGS...

Luciana: It says keep the trash out of the flowers!

 

Ian: This one *reserved handicapped parking* is pass because there are people in their chairs.

All our Senses

We used our 5 senses to explore our surprise! We smelled, touched, listened, and then looked and found it was PIZZA! They were excited to use their last sense of taste to try our pizza.  Our pizza came from our neighborhood pizza store Jockamo’s.

Goldfish Taste Test

One of the children were looking through magazine and saw a Cupcake Goldfish ad. Ms. Michelle asked if he had ever tried the Cupcake Goldfish, and he said No. During meeting we asked who has ever tried that flavor of Goldfish and most of the children said no but were interested in trying them.

So, we decided to have a Goldfish Taste Test!


We started with the children looking at the five different packages and predicting what the Goldfish would taste like. After making their predictions they tasted the five different Goldfish. Here is what they said they taste like:


Cheddar Goldfish:

Like 100 cheeses - Matiw

Cheese - Hayden

Baby Goldfish:

Blueberry - Adira

Peanuts - Kalvery

Cheese - Camila

Pizza Goldfish:

Good - Matiw

Spaghetti - Brittany

Pizza - Natasha

 

Smore Goldfish:

Marshmallows - Adira




Cupcake Goldfish:

Blueberry - Lucianna

Cupcake - Ian

Cupcake - Samiyah
