Dr. Seuss & More!

I know it's been a while :o( I'm still here just really busy. I snap pictures quite often so this blog is full of them! Enjoy!


                                                                  Dr. Seuss' birthday!
We started the Dr. Seuss unit on his birthday. This is some of the class during Daily 5 in Listening to Reading. They are listening to "Fox in Socks". Below are many, many different Seusstastic centers!




Here is when the Environmobile came from the Lake County Solid Waste Management District to teach us about composting. 
Every student got a microscope. This was so exciting for them!

Each group of tables got their own compost pile to dig out worms...ick!








Look at all those worms! They had a contest to see who could find the most!











Back to Seuss! Have you heard of our "Seuss Partners"???? We are going through all 45ish books that Dr. Seuss wrote & are reading them in front of the class! They did such a great job & we're not even done yet. Some books are way too easy & some are too difficult. We are reading what we can & working on our fluency & decoding at the same time.












                                                                    More Seussy centers!



Don't worry! I will be back before the end of the year. I still have a TON of pics! Have your child use their level 1 voice (whisper) & tell me I owe them a BIG FUZZY!
