What makes you different? Today we partnered up and shared what makes us unique. We practiced listening and focused on respectful interactions. Here's what we found...
Molly has lost three teeth. Ike was the biggest in his Kindergarten class. William likes football. Charlie likes Nebraska. Maddy like Minecraft. Avery likes bunnies. Quintin lives at Highlands. Aracely wears glasses. Jack P. does not like the color pink. Gavin is the only one in first grade on swim team. Jack K. is a computer whiz. Lucien has a lot of BMX trophies. Leila has lost eight teeth. Finn was not born in Aspen. Devon has pink socks. Micah is a boy.
We had the last of our cross country skiing adventures today. It happened to be the most beautiful spring weather. The sun was warm, the snow was soft, and the skiing was a blast.
In other news we continued our work with rocks. We finished up the second rock formation, sedimentary rocks. These rocks are formed with erosion and weathering over a great deal of time. Layers and layers of sand and mud deposited from air and water form sedimentary rocks.
We also found new and interesting ways to make our reviews more convincing. Here are some tricks. Give a lot of reasons. Use sparkly words. Give a sneak peak. Give it a rating with stars.
Today we started the review part of our opinion writing unit. We'll be writing up a storm to let you know about the good, the bad, and the ugly. We'll be discussing movies, books, restaurants, video games, toys, and anything else you might need to know about! Stay tuned.
Last week we talked about the author Peter H. Reynolds. We created images of what certain feelings look like inside our bodies and then wrote about them with great big juicy words. The ideas came from the wonderful book Ish. This is what (insert feeling here)-ish feels like...
Do you like Green Eggs and Ham? Do you like them here or there? Do you like them anywhere?

Most of the students in our class would...EAT THEM ANYWHERE!
