April 25th, 2014

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!  Coming back to school on Monday, my students were introduced to the letter, "T".  We started off making our T-Tigers.

On Tuesday, the 22nd, we observed Earth Day.  We discussed the concept of reducing, reusing and recycling.  Then, I brought out my own personal recyclables from home for my students to (of course) construct a robot.  The end result?  Meet Robo.  She's a super-powered fembot who uses her super powers to fight pollution.

On Wednesday, we put together our t-tape.

Throughout the week, we also tricycled in our ties...

...tambourined with tambourines...

...talked together while taking tea...

...and tinkered with toys (we're on kind of a robot kick right now).

We also concluded our rainbow theme and - to my great joy - started on insects. 

"Ladybugs are my favorite insect because they're so pretty."

We then learned about my favorite insect; the firefly. They're from early in my childhood, back in the old country.  And, by old country, I mean the Ohio suburbs.

Meanwhile, in Ms. Rebecca's class, her students thoroughly cleaned the brick walls with soapy water and paintbrushes.

They read stories together, too.

As did Miss Kim's class.

I want to say a huge thank-you to all my families for taking the time to complete our first homework packets.  Every single student (who wasn't on a cruise or a trip to Hawaii) worked hard on their homework this week.

Gotta fill those beautiful minds!
