*~*Gingerbread Fun*~*

Today we read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. We decided this was a fantasy story so she was trying to entertain when she wrote this story. Jan Brett was also the illustrator of the book so we watched a video of her showing us how she drew the Gingerbread Baby for the book. We followed along and did a great job!

  

After that we made our own Gingerbread House!!!! Tomorrow we will begin working on writing a “how to..” and inform an audience of how they can make their own gingerbread house. This week is going to be full of fun Christmas activities that tie to our learning.

Mystery Skype

Today we were able to connect with a class from another state through Skype. We had no idea where the class was from until we went through a process of “yes” or “no” questions and used process of elimination to figure out where they were located. Here’s a few pictures of the process. Be sure you have your student tell you more! They had such a great time, I’ve promised them I will schedule another Mystery Skype date in January.

Root Beer Float Party for Science

I ran across these pictures from earlier in the school year and they were too cute not to share. The week we explored matter in science we had a little Root Beer Float party. Can you spot the solid, liquid, and gas in the photos? What a yummy way to learn about the world around us!

Off to the Races… Graphing Style!

Last week we were off to the races with graphing. We made hats to predict which race car we thought would win the race. We then used data to conduct a race, make a pictograph, and a bar graph. We were able to answer questions based on the given data. Check out your student’s group post on Seesaw to see more of the fun!

Bowling Fun turned into a Graphing Lesson

We began graphing skills last week, and I must say it was one of the most fun weeks we’ve had! Hearing 15 kids yell “strike!” all at once brought a huge grin to my face.  Not only did  we acquire new math skills, but some of you have some pretty solid bowlers! I was impressed.

We took our bowling data and turned it into a pictograph, followed by a bar graph. From there we were able to interpret the data and answer questions based on how well our group bowled.
