Pink Piggy Pancake and Pajama Party!

P is for Pink Piggy Pancakes!

Look at all those cute little piggies!

Yum! Time to eat!

Hooray for snow! The little bit of snow we got today during recess was perfect for building snowmen!

Wow! Check out the HUGE snowman Eva, Eloise and Charlotte made. Great teamwork, girls!

The judges give Quinn a standing ovation after his penguin belly slide.

Letter P Sound Circle!

P is for Pencil! Ms. Katie and friends finish up our letter P masterpiece during afternoon activities. Check out that awesome pencil!

Quinn, Jack and Wes test out their handy work :)

Another successful sound circle under our belts! Great job everyone! Ask your child what he/she saw today for the letter P.

Quinn, Laura and Makenna help to make brownies for our mid-year celebration. Yum!

Friends also make sandwiches to share with families :)

Look at that line! Way to be quiet and safe, friends!

The Letter P!

Before reading our Alphatales story, Kallen shows us what an uppercase P looks like.

And Mason writes a lowercase p for us.

We loved The Pig's Picnic! What a silly story full of P words! 

We came up with another great word list. Ask your child which word(s) he/she contributed. 

We did it! We earned 100 trinkets! 

This is what earning 100 trinkets looks like! P is for Proud...we are VERY proud of ourselves for the awesome choices we've been making in and out of the classroom.

During quiet choices, Wes draws a picture of a Mama jaguar and her baby. So cute!

Laura practices writing the numbers 1-20 using our morning meeting calendar. What a great idea, Laura!

Owls, Orbs and Ocean Ooze!

The beginnings of an owl...

Lily and Mya help make our classroom owl during afternoon activities. 

O is for Owl! A Mama owl and little owl babies to be exact. We will display our little owl family on Monday...keep an eye out for it!

Today we made Ocean Ooze using vegetable oil, potting soil, cornstarch and water. We were attempting to replicate the ooze found on the ocean floor (thanks to our current Magic Tree House book, Dark Day in the Deep Sea). Let's just say it was....interesting :)

Brave explorers.

Hahaha! Karsyn is not impressed.

Mason and Wes love it!

Jack's favorite part is mixing all of the ingredients together and "squishing" it in between his fingers.

O is for Orbs! Today during morning recess, we are finally able to cut the balloons off of our orbs and use them on the playground. 

Who knew we could have this much fun with balls of ice?!?!?!
