All About the Sun, Moon, and our Solar System!

Monday, Sully's mom came in and taught us a lot about our solar system.  She has a bachelor's degree in Astronomy and it was so much fun to hear and gain some of the knowledge she has about the moon, sun, and planets.  As a culminating activity to our space unit, Sully and his mom prepared play dough to make the moon, sun, and other space objects.  They turned out great!

Spring Nouns, Verbs, and Adjectives

Springtime weather, it can change,
Oh it can change each day.
In the spring we might see snow,
I love a snowy day!

This is a fun song we sing in the spring.  We change the song according to the weather.  In the spring, we might see snow, sun, fog, etc.

Today we did see snow!

We brainstormed nouns, verbs, and adjectives relating to Spring and recorded them on flower anchor charts.

The kiddos then wrote the nouns, verbs, and adjectives on their own paper.  They used the words to write sentences about spring.
