Mystery Reader

Today's mystery reader read "Bedhead!"


4 chrysalises changing into butterflies! Isn't metamorphosis fascinating?!


We are very excited and thankful to have new books for our classroom library!!! Thanks to Duke Energy for funding my Donor's Choose project!!! 


Today we did a practice run of Skype with Mr. Clauss!!! He read a really funny book to the class! He asked us some great comprehension questions about the book.

Stop Animation App

Mr. Clauss talked to us today about doing a stop animation project in the future. He showed us the super cool stop motion studio app! Mr. Clauss said that this will be a privilege for the students to participate in so everyone has to work very hard for Mrs. Knust and show that they are ready for a project like this. 


Thanks to our volunteers who've signed up for this week! We appreciate your help! Here's a sign up for next week I interested!

Caterpillars, Oh My!

Last Friday while gathering milkweed for our caterpillars I found what I thought could be eggs although I've never seen the eggs before. I put them in a jar and guess what!!!!! This morning I found two tiny caterpillars!!! After looking at one of the leaves I brought in this morning I think I have another egg!! Oh my!!!! 


Thank you to Brett, Blayten, and their families for the new book for our classroom!  I'm going to read it to the class as soon as they are back from recess. That was nice of you to think of us!
