Pictures!!

Check out the fun pictures from our assembly!

We had a wonderful time celebrating the end of our second unit of writing!  We split our class into three groups and so did Mrs. Stadt’s class and Miss Taber’s class.  We mixed our three classrooms together and the kids got to share their stories with our other first grade friends!

Writing Celebration 2010

And here is a compilation of our last three Friday Reading Shares:

Reading Share

Oobleck!

The kids had a blast experimenting with Oobleck today.  After reviewing the different forms of matter (solid, liquid, & gas) the students had the chance to get messy.  They noticed that Oobleck has some attributes of a solid but some of a liquid too. Check out their enthusiastic faces!

This was so much fun and it is super easy.  If you haven’t tried it before, it’s simple to try at home!

Oobleck

Materials Needed

  • 1 1/2 C. Corn Starch
  • 1 C. Water
  • Food Color (optional)

Mix the ingredients and allow children to play with the mixture. When”pushed” together, the mixture will appear dry and solid; as children let go of the mixture, it flows like a smooth liquid.
