New Year, New Investigation

With the new year we decided it was time for a new investigation. The students in room two have shown interest in basketball and have created a list of questions that they want to have answered. We will be taking a trip to the library in order to gather books on the subject so that we can further our understanding of the sport.

Shapes & Names

During a book making exploration the students became interested in lines and letters. We decided to draw with chalk on black  paper and use clear gems to cover each line. Some students created circles and squares while others created their names.

We had the wonderful opportunity to visit Pleasant View Apple Orchard. The students had a great time picking and tasting several different varieties. When we returned to school we decided to create patterns using the apples as stamps. Ms. Pam cut the apples in half and even made some shape designs on the bottom. The students enjoyed creating different designs using their new apple stamps.

Creating Structures

The students in room two have shown an interest in creating structures using different materials. Today we decided to explore straws and how they could be used. After a short period of time the students decided to get the playdoh from a nearby shelf. That is when they began using both materials to create new items.
