We had a super exciting Monday morning when the Union Tribune recorded their weather reports live from the playground and from inside my classroom! To see the video, click on the link: Union Tribune Kids Weather Report
Whether they were on camera or watched the report from a distance (there were a few that were camera shy), all agreed that it was a lot of fun! Weather reporter, Monica, was wonderful with the children and she seemed to enjoy it as much as they did.
Fame, and arriving at school before 6:30am, isn't easy.
Earlier in the week with Miss Gabriella, the students were introduced to their new members of the classroom, an ant colony. This is actually a fascinating little thing to watch over the course of a week.
In my class, we planted wheatgrass seeds to watch grow.
When the wheatgrass was ready, we juiced it. Oddly enough, not one student enjoyed drinking it.
