Brand New Year
SOOOOOO....is it now 2010! Hard to believe that the school year is almost half over! The students came back to school half asleep (as well as their teacher). It was fun to hear all of their stories about their Christmas break and what Santa brought them! We also got a new student to add to our Brilliant Butterflies! They have been great this past week showing him the ropes! We began our winter unit this week that will last for the next week. We will be learning so much about bears, penguins, winter animals, snowmen, etc. We did a mini illustrator unit on Robert Sabuda, a paper engineer, this past week. We learned through different websites, his books, and PowerPoint presentations about him and how he constructs his books. On Friday, we even got to make our own mini pop-up book! What a fun week!
