This week we finished our paper playgrounds in art. We also made splatter paintings.

We are writing letters to our classmates. We are telling our friends about our favorite animals.

We did an experiment in science where we made craters on the moon. 

We started a new book for read aloud called Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle.

We wrote letters to ourselves in the future to remind us not to destroy snow creations made by smaller children. We will put them in a time capsule.

We started a new song in Spanish.

This week we made paper playgrounds in Art.

We are learning about the moon.  The dark spots on the moon are called "seas".  Big rocks hit the moon to make craters.  We have a Moon Journal to watch and sketch the moon.  If you weigh 60 pounds on the earth, you weigh 10 pounds on the moon. The phases of the moon are caused by the shadows of the earth.

In writing, we are learning how to write letters.

In math, we are learning about the greater than and less than signs.  We work in our Math Journals.

We had  a nice week!
