Today we performed our plays for the first graders and our parents.  We had iPad time.  It was funny when we found a bug in the girls' bathroom.  Ella got it and was showing it to Mrs. Schlickbernd when it fell out of the tissue and onto the table!  Mrs. Schlickbernd brushed it onto the floor and Braxton stepped on it.  Ewww!

Today we learned more about fossils to prepare for our trip to Ashfall Fossil Beds next week.  We also did another day of MAP tests in the computer lab.  Our field trip is coming up on Tuesday!

Today we took a math test.  It had questions about temperature and time on it.  We went to the playground and looked for clues about who and what lives there.  We were paleontologists!  Tomorrow we are having ham and swiss casserole for lunch.  May 17 is our last day of school.

We've learned about the Titanic this week.  It sunk 100 years ago on Sunday.  We made a Titanic book with facts in it.  During math we are learning about tell time.  It is fun!  


Tuesday, April 10, 2012

In math we started learning about telling time to 5 minutes.  Mrs. Schlickbernd taught us two card and dice games that we can play to practice telling time.  We learned about Carl Johnson who survived when the Titanic sunk.  He lived in Nebraska, but now he's dead.  It was funny when Susy and Ella made up a poem about a kangaroo at recess.  It goes like this "I'm a kangaroo, I know what to do.  I live at a house so I grab my mouse, because I'm a kangaroo"  They are going to sing it to the class someday.  Saturday, April 14 is the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.

Catching Up

Mrs. Schlickbernd was gone on Thursday so we're going to catch up with two posts today.

On Wednesday, April 4, we had two high school students who are studying about early childhood come and read a book to us.  They read Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia then we played baseball in our classroom!  It was fun! Adrianna was here visiting us today and will be here tomorrow, too.  Here are some pictures of our baseball game with the high schoolers.

On Thursday, April 5, we watched the movie of The Indian in the Cupboard.  It wasn't exactly like the book, but we liked it.  We started reading a new Magic Tree House book called Midnight on the Moon.  We also practiced our plays that we wrote.  Here are some pictures of us in our costumes.

Today we learned how to estimate capacity.  We compared bowls, cups, spoons, and buckets.  In reading Mrs. Schlickbernd listened to all of us read and took some notes.  There is no school on Friday.

Today in Math we started our new topic about weight and capacity.  Capacity means how much something can hold.  Weight means how heavy something is.  It was funny in Science when Susy sat on her cookie!  We don't have school on Friday!

By Olivia

So I bet you're wondering why we had cookies in Science, right? We used Oreo cookies to demonstrate the 8 phases of the moon!  Starting with a new moon, the students had to use their cookies to create the other 7 phases.  It was challenging to get the frosting in just the right spot, but they did a great job!  The best part was after they could tell me the phases, they got to eat their "moons"!  Here are some pictures of our project. ~ Mrs. Schlickbernd
