THE WATER CYCLE
Check out the Water Cycle Song...
SOLIDS, AND LIQUIDS, AND GASES, OH MY!
Today we learned about the properties of solids, liquids, and gases. We compared the three and learned about their molecular structure using cheerios as a model!
Thank you for celebrating with us this morning. We're so excited about our calendars and we hope you enjoy them all year long! Thank you for the love and here's to a fabulous 2018 together!
We also spent some times with our favorite outspoken crayons. Oliver Jeffers' book
The Day the Crayons Quit is nothing short of hilarious. We were a little riled up after this mornings celebration so we ran with the mood and wrote letters to our favorite crayons :)
HOLIDAY PARTY TOMORROW!
We are so excited to invite you to our holiday party tomorrow morning at 8am in the classroom.
We've been working extra hard on a gift for you and hope you can make it!

CODING AND A WORD FROM THE REPORTER
Today in library we celebrated coding week by working with some very special robots. We learned how computers work and how we can program them with simple codes. We worked with two different kinds of robots and had a blast! One read a series of arrow commands the other read color patterns. Thanks Miss Lisa May, Julie Wille, and the tech team! We love robotics!

MORE MESS, MORE LEARNING?
Miss Jen, Edy's mom, came this morning and helped us bake up some delicious pies as part of our Bread Around the World project. We love practicing math through baking. If you have a bread related family tradition that you'd like to share, please sign up below, we'd love to have you!
BREAD AROUND THE WORLD SIGN UP
In math we practiced our resiliency with some tricky problems that followed patterns. If John, Mark and Anna have 10, 9, and 8 pencils respectively and they each lose 2, how many do they each have left? Well, taking away 2 makes a pattern like a staircase so they have 8, 7, and 6 left!
If Eve is 7 centimeters shorter than Joey, and Joey is 91 centimeters tall, how tall is Eve? We tested our skills and solved the problem so many different ways. You can hop back 7, you can take out 10 and subtract 7 from 10 and add the leftovers together, you can exchange a bundle of 10 for ten ones and take away 7 that way, AND YET the answer is 84 any way you solve it. We love math!
