Happy Saturday all!!!
So happy it's that time to share my week with you!
On Monday, We had our long-awaited "My Robot" presentations! I had 100% participation and the kids did an AMAZING job giving their oral reports!
"Peach & Blue"
If I had to pick one story that truly touches my heart, it's Peach and Blue. I made it to the last page and the tears just trickled down. The kids were in shock but remained silent. I asked, "Why am I reacting to the story this way?"
At that moment, a flood gate opened and the kids just began sharing how the story was "from the heart!"
I wasn't planning on doing a follow-up with this, but I just had to get them writing about what they were thinking and feeling...
We were so inspired by all the pretty rainbows out there, we wanted to make some too!
I was going to have the kids use adjectives to describe themselves, BUT, they asked if they could pick nouns instead! They were very interested in thinking of their favorite things that were each color of the rainbow. How could I say no!
Our science project was Pinterest inspired of course!
Making a Rainbow!!
We needed these four ingredients:
I added 4 drops of each color, one at a time, into the milk, slowly....
Add a squirt of dish soap, and be ready!!!
This picture does not do it justice.
It was a bubbling, tumbling, rolling rainbow extravaganza in the bowl for about two minutes!!!
The kids were bursting at the seams with this one!!
April is my favorite time for art history!
We are reading and learning about VanGogh and I found a coloring page through a google search...
Not sure if about the copyright...
but I enlarged it to be 12x18.
Then we used oils to color!
Thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching for this 5 for Friday/Saturday tell all!!!
Here's to a relaxing weekend to all of us!!
