I have been so terrible lately about getting my class blog updated in a timely manner. Sorry about that, I will try to do better.
Last week we had an expert visit from the Ogden Nature Center. They brought 2 owls and a Peregrine Falcon. This was such a great experience for the students because we have been studying the Peregrine Falcon for the last few weeks and they just finished an informational paragraph and an art piece about it. Here are a few pictures for you:
Students are now working on an informational essay about a Utah endangered species, and will also be doing artwork to accompany it as well. Celebration of Learning is creeping up on us fast. It will be January 17th.
Intensives begin on Monday! We will be studying weather, the tools that are used to predict it, and creating weather forecasts as a group project. We are also knitting hats on a loom, so please have your student bring a skein of yarn if possible. I will try to have some extra on hand just in case.
Lastly, on Friday the 21st we will be watching a Christmas movie as a class. After voting on several choices, the students chose to watch The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (not the animated one, the one with Jim Carrey). It is rated PG. Students can bring a pillow, blanket, and a small stuffed animal that day if they would like.
