Welcome Back

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Although the Huskers didn’t deliver, it was still a fun game to watch. LilyAnn won the Husker prediction by only being 6 total points off.

Our field trip to Arbor Day Farms is this Thursday. If you agreed to volunteer I sent home an information page tonight.

All of the math stations today were apple themed. We will continue to use those stations all week. I taught the students a math addition game today that will be added to math bins tomorrow.

We made homemade applesauce today in class. It was really simple to make and smelled amazing all day. The students helped me write a How to Writing to talk about the steps we took to make it. I sent home the recipe we used if anyone would like to try it out at home.

The students colored an apple picture the color of the apple they brought in with them. Then they wrote an opinion piece about their favorite kind of apple and their favorite way to eat apples.

We learned a lot about Johnny Appleseed today. After reading a story and watching a Brainpop Jr. about him we wrote all the facts that we could remember about his life. He was a very interesting man.

For writing station today, the students made an apple cutout into something else. They were very creative. They all wrote the following sentence on their paper, “I used to be an apple, but now I am a ….” I was looking for students to remember what they need to write a complete sentence.

During reading small groups we read another story about Johnny Appleseed and then wrote 4 facts about his life in our reading journals.

At the end of the day we finally got to try our homemade applesauce. The opinion of it was about half and half. I did like the comment, “You’re a good cook Mrs. Robinson.” I am definitely telling my husband that! He might disagree 🙂 IMG_6637

The last thing we did for the day was predict if an apple would sink or float. We made our individual predictions and a whole class prediction. Then we tested it out. We learned that an apple floats in water!
