Let's start with Dr. Seuss' birthday on March 2nd. We listened to The Cat in the Hat and made hats.
We also had Dr. Seuss themed work stations last week. This one is making words with the letters on the page...
and this one is sorting nouns, adjectives, and verbs.
We explored chemical changes in science by tarnishing pennies in vinegar.
Then we took a different crop of pennies (most of them 30 or 40 years old) and tried to make them clean. We tried washing them in soapy water, but not much changed.
I had some other materials set out for the students to use, and eventually they discovered that salt mixed with vinegar makes pennies shiny and new again.
Another project we worked on last week was these prayer posters:
In religion class, we talked about the story of the woman who asked Jesus for healing for her sick daughter. This story lends itself well to learning how to pray. We used this acrostic to remember things to include in a prayer:
Praise (praise God for all he has done)
Repent (confess your sins)
Ask (ask God for things pertaining to other people)
Yourself (ask God for things that pertain to you)
