Our Thanksgiving Show! ( AND We have a winner.)

Our Tis The Holidays Giveaway  has ended and we have a winner!  Congrats Patricia J.!!

This Thanksgiving my firsties researched pilgrims and their arrival to the new land.  Each student received a letter and had to come up with a new fact (that they learned in their research) that began with that letter.  Then we performed our little ditty in front of our parents and sang a little holiday song.  They also were able to serve their parents some yummy pumpkin pie.  And of course what is Thanksgiving in school with out making butter!!!  We had a blast in all of our efforts to learn true facts about the pilgrims.  Here are a few quick pics! ("V" was absent :0( so of course I don't have a pic of his letter.) I wish I still had the facts that they composed so that I could write them under each letter but I let them take them home.

Shake, Shake, Shake……..Shake your butter!!

Our school has also raised money to adopt a guide dog.  We actually raised enough money to adopt two.  They are now 7 months old and named Milly and Virgil.  We got a visit from Milly this week.  The kids really enjoyed learning how they are helping a blind person be able to receive more help.
Here are some quick pics of Milly's visit:

That's it for now!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

Another AWESOME Mad Science Day

Mad Science Day has come and gone again!  I have to say it just might be my ABSOLUTE favorite "field trip" EVER!!! The Mad Scientists from Mad Science of Tampa Bay are SWEET!  (Saradactyl you are FABULOUS!!)  These hands on science experiments get better and better! Here are a few photos from this year!

Digging for fossils

Halloween Science

Shooting off rockets

More Rocket fun


Learning about light using our cool "spy" glasses

We made Frakenworms!  The kiddos were so excited to see those gummy words wiggle! Of course they had to watch and watch and watch before it started happening!  We learned that Scientists are patient observers!

Just a reminder to be on the look out for this HUGE giveaway coming soon!!!

Thanksgiving Break is next week.  I am just so amazed how fast this year is flying by!  Christmas will be here before we know it!  I hope everyone enjoys there time off with their family!!

Going Batty for Informational Books

I know! I know! I have been out of the blogging loop for a couple weeks…….It seems this year I can't keep up with everything!  Any Who on to the good stuff!

We have been studying the many features of Informational books and how they help us to understand the topic of the book better.  We began by sorting through our own classroom library.  We decided which books were fiction and why.  Then we decided which books were Informational and how we knew. In these photos the teams are working together to accomplish this task.  I LOVE to hear their reasoning behind these book talks.

 After many days of sorting, investigating, and discussing the many Informational text features and Fiction text features, we created venn diagram bats and sorted the features of books on their wings. Below is our shared reading version and a few of their mini versions.

In other news……...I have a give away happening VERY soon! Be sure to check back here to get the details!

 The ending date is subject to change so stayed tuned for sneak peeks of the products being offered and possible date changes!!

I would like to end my post tonight by saying THANK YOU!
To my students: Thank you for being so AWESOME and spending each day with me!
To my student's parents: Thank you so much for your continued support for our ongoing educational endeavors and allowing me the fabulous gift of being your child's teacher
To my blogging friends: Thank you for being an active supporter of the KBB blog (I promise that I will get better at staying on top of it - I am thinking my New Years Resolution will be to post at least 1 time a week.)

Have a super week!
