  • used a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast versions.
  • got our speaking parts in different fairy tale reader's theaters.
  • wrote opinion paragraphs about the texts we read this week.
  • wrote an opinion paragraph about whether we agreed with the Little Red Hen or not.
  • wrote pages in our first grade memory book.

Science:  Sound and Light

  • This week we learned how sounds are made in cartoons.  We used our bodies and rulers to make sounds for a rainstorm and a bouncing ball.
  • We learned sound is created by vibrations, change the vibration and change the sound and when you stop the vibration the sound stops.  We used string to create a head harp.
  • We explored the question of what would it be like if there were no windows.  We sorted materials by--see-through, kind of see-through, and not see-through.  
  • We used tissue paper to make stained glass art.
