Moving on. We had some fun stuff going on this week, along with
On Monday, we had a guest speaker come and talk to us about sound. She is a parent of one of my former students and works as a sound engineer. I'm not sure the littles were as fascinated by her presentation as I was, but they did seem to enjoy watching popcorn jump from sound vibrations.
We also explored sound with a tuning fork. Ever use one of those before? Neither had I, but boy was it fun! It was pretty neat to actually feel the sound vibrations, and then when I hit the fork and touched it to a glass of water, the water sprayed everywhere! My firsties pretty much thought it was the most awesome thing ever...and I might tend to agree :)
Yesterday, we read 3 different groundhog day books:
They really liked all these books, but they especially loved Substitute Groundhog. It might have had something to do with my Texan armadillo accent...
After we read the books, we discussed burrows and hibernation. Then we made these adorable groundhogs, stolen from Cara at The First Grade Parade. She is amazing, isn't she? I mean, why come up with my own activity when she already has an adorable one, right? They turned out super cute. See for yourself.
Alright, well, this girl is off to the Cheesecake Factory :) Happy Friday, yall!
P.S. I was nominated for 2 differeny bloggy awards...whoo-hoo! I promise to be back tomorrow to accept and share!
