Ayehu brought lettuce for the tadpoles. Tadpoles eat water plants. The tadpoles are bigger now and they have gills. Some frog eggs were duds.
We had a scavenger hunt with our 5th grade buddies. And we had a recess with them that was very long.
We had two birthdays in our class this week. We had Tommy's summer birthday and Maya's birthday.
We planted seeds in our class today. We got them from Tommy's mom. We do not know what they are. On Tuesday we planted outside with Savannah's mom. We planted peas, radishes, and lettuce. Rafa and Caiden were planting helpers. Some kids made plants for Alona, Elena, and D.J. because they were absent.
Dear Room 1B Families, Today was wacky hair day. Bo had a cupcake in her hair. It smelled good. Scarlet had pink hair. Maya had red hair like Ms. Bergeron. Lots of kids had crazy hair.
It was SO exciting. Our frog spawn came today. We are starting to learn about frogs and eggs and tadpoles. We did observations. Some will hatch next week. Some will never hatch.
We will make observations as we watch our eggs hatch, develop, and grow into frogs.
Here are the frog spawn inside their jelly eggs.
Room 1B Students are all authors! We studied a book series called the Brand New Readers. We noticed that every story is 8 pages, has a pattern, usually but not always has characters that are animals that act like people, and has a funny or surprise ending. They also are very colorful. We wrote our own Brand New Readers. We shared them with our parents at Open House. We read them with our 5th grade Buddies at a special celebration on Friday. We read to our buddies. They read stories they wrote to us. Have a good weekend. Love, Room 1B
This week was so fun. We got sap. We went on a field trip to see how to make maple syrup. We got to taste the syrup. It was very very bitter to some students. Some students say it tasted like wood. Some children did not want to taste the syrup. Some children say it was really really sugary.
We did not have BASE on Monday. Dr. Unobskey cancelled it because it was snowing.
We had 5th grade buddies today.
Room 1B students had to leave, so we are finishing on March 23rd.
Today we got to play partner games. We get to play the games from the shelves.
This week we made sap into syrup. We boiled it. We got to taste the syrup and the sap. It overflowed. The syrup got all over the counter. The syrup had little sugar crystals in it. Some first graders will be announcing at School Meeting on Monday. Divine will be the speaker from Room 1B.
Our maple sugar breakfast is on March 29th. That is also the day of our classroom Open House.
We did not have buddies. We got new tables. We got moved around. The tables are wider and shorter.
Today was really, really awesome. Pajama day was so fun. We got to bring our stuffed lovies to school. And it was indoor recess. We got to do everything with our stuffies. It was so fun having Pajama day. Some people didn't have stuffies. But Bo shared with Elena because she had two. Levar shared with D.J. Sean shared with Alona even though she had her own. We got to hang out with our stuffies after check in and just play with them.
On Tuesday we tapped the maple sugar tree. We got to taste the sap. All of the classes share the sap. Ms. O'Brien's class got 35 cups. Ms. Weig's class got zero because the bucket fell on Nico. And we got zero cups because it was raining too hard to check. Alona and her brother are both going to be in school meeting. We will talk about maple sugaring to the whole school.
Here is Mr. Hernandez tapping our tree on Tuesday morning.
And here we are tasting the sap!
It was sooooooo hot out we did not have to wear coats this week. All the days were sunny and warm except for Friday. On Friday it rained and rained and rained and rained. We did not get to go outside for recess.
We did not have 5th grade buddies. They were too busy today. We did have extra calm down cool down.
There goes group 1! Time to say goodbye!
Room 1B Kids
We almost forgot! We had a concert of drumming music from different parts of Africa on Monday. Ms. Thompson and Mr. Donaldson and Mr. Rockwell all played the drums!
