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

We read the story There’s a Billy Goat in the Garden in big book form.  We made 3 popsicle stick puppets from characters in the story and retold the story with the puppets.

We also have continued our study on characters in books that we read, and students wrote about their favorite character, and we discussed why they were our favorite characters.

We have continued our theme on farms and animals on the farm.  The students that we can get more than just food from farms but we can also get wool from sheep to make clothes.  Then for read aloud time we read story Woolbur.  We created a Venn Diagram comparing the story to a previous story we read during our National Geographic Cengage Reading block time.

We wrote about what makes us special and unique and made an art project to make us colorful like Woolbur and his friends. Students really enjoyed showing of their own unique creativity!

Moving on from the fall harvest unit we talked about where food comes from.  Students learned that food doesn’t just come from the store but much of our food that we eat comes from farms.  We watched Sesame Street visit to a farm (since there are no farms out here in rural Alaska).

We then discussed the main idea of the movie (there are many foods that can come from farms), and illustrated the key details we saw in the video in a web graphic organizer.

Today we read the story Click Clack Moo: Cow’s That Type discussed cause and effect.  We then created an emergent reader book talking about what other animals on the farm might want.
