Our Title 1 team put on a pajama party and invited parents to come and read to our class.  This also helped launch our class into our day & night science unit.  We started out by enjoying cereal for snack and then for drop everything and read, students got to snuggle with their pillows and stuffed animals.

Finally our class built blanket forts, listened to a bedtime story on the SMART board and had our parents read to us at the forts.

Then starting this week we learned about what causes day & night.  We read a non-fiction book about what makes day and night and watched a video on youtube about how the earth rotates and revolves around the sun.

As a class, we created a venn diagram that show things you can see in the sky during the day and during the night.  Then the class filled out their own venn diagram in a cut and paste activity.  At the science center students got to explore the concepts of day and night using a globe.
