To wrap up the listening skill for Power Hour, Mrs. Saunders' group made dirt cake. They were given a recipe that they had to cut in half and away they went without asking questions. It was a yummy, fun activity!
The first graders created a huge and AWESOME poster/mural featuring six different kinds of dinosaurs. We have read about dinosaurs, so it was fun to enlarge and draw their outlines on this poster. We decided as a group how the layout should look - and that there should be a volcano in the distance! It was wonderful to see and hear the class working together and sharing ideas!
_Well, not exactly...sometimes Oreos ARE the moon! In second grade we learned about the four basic moon phases - New Moon, First Quarter Moon, Full Moon, and Last Quarter Moon. Students practiced the moon phases by drawing each phase, playing games with moon phase flashcards, and finally created a model of the moon phases using Oreo cookies. Students had a lot of fun twisting the Oreo cookies apart and scraping off the white filling to create each moon phase. And the best part was that we got to eat the leftover Oreo cookies!
