Randi @ Teach It With Class, Annie First Grade, and Suzy Q I'll be contacting you!
It's been a fun couple of weeks and I've got pictures to prove it!
We did our sink or float experiment today and the kiddos had a blast. They got so excited for science! I love it. I have to really structure this activity because I don't want water every where. Each student has a specific job to do and they HAVE to work as a team of scientists!
We also did another experiment last week called the 'Great Meltdown'. In groups again, my group of scientists had to find out what the best way to melt an ice cube was. We used sand, salt, snow melt, blowing on it, and even sitting on it.
Snow melt won!
It's been busy, we've done a LOT of measuring in math. We measured with kid steps, baby steps, basketball shoes, tiles, cubes, and paper clips. I love the pictures where the firsties are helping each other with the kid steps. They are holding each others hands so they don't fall over.
Anyhow, if you stuck it out till the end, here is a freebie. We are working on vowel combination-this week is oi oy and next week is aw au. Here are the sheets I made for us to do. Most of the graphics are DJ Inkers. Click on the picture for a PDF.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great tomorrow.
