So after about a month, I finally was able to post some of my students "All About Me Lapbooks." They turned out pretty cute!
We're working on the weather cycle, so we pulled out the mini water cycle ziplock bag activity. Instead of having every child do a sandwich or quart-sized bag, every table actually worked on a gallon-sized bag together. By taking turns by calling the students' colors, it actually worked really well as a collaborative active (See how table colors work in this Bright Ideas post). And the gallon-sized bags worked a lot better at showing all of the parts and the condensation.
It's been the year of orugas (caterpillars) in our classroom, and one sweet student brought in a Luna moth caterpillar for us. The first day it wrapped itself up in a cute, little tamale! According to the internet, it will take all winter to make its transformation.
I LOVE Lita Lita's science bilingual flip books. They're great as individual activities or as inserts in interactive notebooks. Her Clouds Fold and Learn was a perfect addition to our cloud study.
I hope you all had a great week! Please have a great weekend!
