January 27th, 2017

This week, we continued investigating weather.

Fortunately, there was a lot of it for us to observe outside.

Starting with thunderstorms, we created our own interpretation of a stormy night.

We also learned about the water cycle.  Imitating the earth's warm bodies of water evaporating into the cold atmosphere, we made it "rain" in a jar.



Then, we wrote in our science journals.

Another huge project we worked on this week was our 1-10 counting book.

We also closely examined the letter Nn...

...and the IT word family.



For those who work closely with me, it's well established that my teaching methods are carefully delivered with the utmost of integrity.  Therefore, when I create my learning tools, I use an uncompromising combination of precision and seriousness.


By Friday, we took advantage of the wind.  We carefully tested various objects to see if the wind would blow them around.  We never had so much fun with a coffee filter before!

Or a latex glove.

And, since American Beauty, no one has received this much enjoyment out of watching a grocery bag dance in the wind.

The gourd, however, was super boring.

Afterwards, we recorded our data.

We tested the objects on the scale and came to the conclusion that heavier objects couldn't be moved by the wind.

It's been a wonderful week!
