It's been a while...

Hello Folks,

I apologize for not updating the blog for a while....I've been sucked into other projects lately :) Thanks for understanding!

Here's whats new!

This week we went on our 1st field trip to the Flynn Theater to see Skippy Jon Jones. If you don't know the stories, Skippy Jon Jones is a Siamese cat who thinks he's a Chihuahua and has a wild imagination! We have been huge fans ever since we first opened the book and the theater brought our reading to life! We decided we needed to make our own shows so we created "Skippito" puppets! It's been fun!

Did I mention we are addition experts? We've been practicing fluency with addition. Some of the activities we've done lately are domino addition, sorting facts, playing race to 100 for place value, and addition war. We also have included a game called BUMP where you bump other players pieces if you roll two numbers that make the same sum as where their piece is. We are learners!

Today we spent a lot of time talking and learning about Groundhogs and Groundhog Day which is tomorrow. Our weekly magazine was about Groundhogs, we watched a video about groundhogs, and then we did some shadow science with Groundhog puppets. I wonder if we have 6 more weeks of winter coming in Vermont. :)

Have a great weekend everyone!
