Well, today we watched the song on Interjections. I explained that Interjections were just like Exclamations! We had fun watching the video and finding all the different interjections. If you want to see it, check it out here!
Have fun watching it and counting how many times a "!" was used!
In science we started our Living Things Lapbooks! I showed the kids an example of a lapbook on the 1+1+1=1 blog. They were impressed and decided that they too can make a lapbook! We decided to take our parts of a flower papers to start our projects. We pasted them to the Plants side of our Living Thing Lapbook, and went on to make a mini book for the Animals side.
We used the information from our Animals Chart to fill in our picture vocabulary mini books.
Mammals:Give birth to live young (babies), have hair of fur on their bodies, and are warm blooded.
Reptiles: lay eggs, have scales*, live on land, are cold blooded, and some have claws that are used to dig and climb. (notice I said some. The kids and I talked in great detail about how snakes are reptiles but don't have claws.) *Did you know that some reptiles use their scales like a camel uses its hump? Their scales are used to hold water to keep the reptile cool.
Amphibians: Lay eggs (their eggs aren't as hard as a reptile's. We made frog eggs for our picture) live in or near the water, have smooth skin*, and are cold blooded. * Since amphibians don't have scales, they have to live in or near water in order to keep their skin moist.
As of right now, this is what our lapbooks look like.
The kids were very impressed with their work this far. I think you'll be impressed with their projects once we finish them!
Tomorrow we are having our first school-wide Cub Cash event in the gym. It's a Teachers Fashion Show and it costs $15 Cub Cash and good behavior. If we're lucky, we'll be getting some good videos!
