Yarn craze in Room 25!

We have been enjoying creating things with yarn.  Thanks Vivian for making each of us a necklace.

Senior Buddies

Last week we enjoyed spending time with our Senior Buddies.  Our turkeys are pretty cool!

Our scientists have been busy in Room 25 this week.

Today we enjoyed "Rock On" - an exploration of rocks and their properties.  We learned more about metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rocks and acted out the process these rocks go through to become the cool rocks that they are.

Look at our amazing rock collections:

Publishing Celebration

At our publishing celebration today, we enjoyed listening to our classroom authors read their story.  When we asked our young authors what they learned about each other, these were their responses:

    Everyone is asking questions about what else happened during the story
      Our writers add really good details
    Some authors are extra cool authors
      A lot of authors were adding spaces between their words
     Some authors wrote about similar topics
     We didn’t notice any white spaces (a lot of color)
    Our authors had a lot of color and a lot detail
     Our word wall words were spelled correctly
     We’re all awesome writers!
      It feels good when people are really listening to the stories
      We added punctuation (periods) and spaces
    We read with (“super so much”) expression
  We read with fluency and changed our voices as we read
We made our people came to life by adding speech bubbles

Wow!  What a list!  We are so proud of our authors!
