This week we tried to keep ice from melting. It was our second attempt. We tried it again so we could improve on our first try. The last piece of ice melted 27 hours and 19 minutes later. The group wrapped the ice cube in felt, then newspaper. They placed it in a cup surrounded by sand and put it outside under a bush. We will finish the unit on States of Matter today.
We finished Gooney Bird Greene. Many students liked the part when Gooney Bird's cat was consumed by a cow. Others liked her dangly diamond earrings. Our new read aloud book is Charlotte's Web.
Three students already did their student-led conference. The rest of the class will do them next week.
First grade rocks!
