I'm Trying to Keep Up with These Updates

It seems like the days are flying by and I'm in a complete whirlwind. I'm taking pictures throughout the week but can't seem to find time to post until the end of the week.

Here's what we've been up to.  This week we've focused on creepy, crawly spiders!!

I introduced the word "schema" and the kids shared what they already knew about spiders.  We also filled in Spiders Can, Have, Are.

For writing this week, we worked in our Writer's Notebooks in our informational section.  Students wrote an opening, 3 new facts, and a wrap up sentence on what they learned about spiders.

Today we made spiders and webs.  If you happen to come by our room you need to be careful.  A spider just might be hanging from the web.  EEKK!!  They look so realistic and some kids were already asking when they could take them home.

We'll begin learning about bats next!
