April 25-29, 2016 Week 32 AND May 2-6, 2016 Week 33

I am sorry that I got a little behind on blogging last week.  Things have been moving very fast for me.  My younger son got married last Friday and I found out I am having ANOTHER grandson!  WOW!  I am thrilled, happy, excited and on top of the world!  God is so good! 

We will read "Dot and Jabber and the Great Acorn Mystery!"  It is a fictional story and it also teaches the reader a lesson about how a seed travels from place to place.  We will blend and read words with vowel digraph oo; compare and contrast objects and characters in a story; identify pronouns; add endings to words; discuss asking sentences (interrogative sentences); and practice Saxon Phonics.

                 And our "mystery reader" was...
                   Brooks' mom...Mrs. Kris Ann!

In Math we will continue to work on non-standard units of measurement.  We will use cubes, marshmallows, paper clips, beans, etc to measure different objects,

In Science we will put our zoo animal reports on Chatterpix and learn what our friends found out about their animal.  Everyone did a great job!  Here are a few of our reports...  

In Social Studies we will learn about inventors and their inventions.  We will discuss Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell and others.

We had fun learning about plants and growing our own plants.  

After completing our unit on Economics we walked to the store and spent $1.00. We learned about buyers and sellers AND tax!  LOL!

Zoe's Flat Stanley visited her uncle in New Mexico!  He went to lots of famous landmarks!

Mrs. Ashley was so sweet to come and help us get ready for the zoo!  Thanks Aubrey's mom! 

  Thanks "G" and Mrs. Arelly for 
helping us out at the zoo!

      Look at this beautiful white tiger!  
I was so excited to take this great picture of him looking at me!  Gorgeous!


 Just three more reasons I love to visit the zoo!  We had a BLAST!
