Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!

This week we have started our new unit “Buggy about Spring!”.  We started by reading the story Hopper Hunts for Spring and then we went on a nature walk to see if we could signs of spring.  We saw snow melting, heard crows, felt rain falling, and smelled the fresh air.  Because we live so close to the arctic circle, it takes longer for the snow to the melt.  So our pictures of our spring looks more like winter in the lower 48.  When we came back we wrote about our 5 senses in spring.

Last week we finished up our unit on Our Community and Communities around the world.  Mr. Daniel’s dad is a retired police officer and he decided to share his job with the class.  Since it is expensive and difficult for him to fly from Houston all the way out to our isolated village, we had him Skype with the whole class!

Mr. Mike (as our class called him) showed us his uniform and all the things he used to use while on the job.  He also showed his revolver and explained to us about gun safety.  The K-1 All-Stars got to interview Mr. Mike and we completed our KWL chart about Police Officers and Mr. Mike.

As we move along with our community helpers unit we learned about firefighters and watched a Mr. Rogers Neighborhood video that showed us about firefighters.  We also learned that not only do firefighters help put out fires, we also learned that they teach us about fire safety.  We then read a book called “Stop, Drop, and Roll” and completed a sentence starter telling our audience that we would remember to do if there was a fire.
