Our field trip to Dewberry Farm is my absolute favorite! And today was no exception. We.had.the.BEST.day! The kids were wonderful. The weather was perfect. And there was hardly anyone at Dewberry Farm, which made it the perfect day! Thank you to all of the parents that went and helped.
Check out the sweetest class EVER sporting their brand new shirts!
Well, once again I have dropped the ball on blogging. So sorry. We have had 2 awesome scientists since I last blogged. Caroline did a really neat experiment for the class. She lit a candle. Then, she took a bottle with the bottom cut off and placed a plastic bag over the end. She pointed the bottle towards the candle and lightly hit the bottom of the bottle, sending a puff of air out of the other end, which blew out the candle. The kids thought this was just the coolest thing. Take a look!
Marshall's experiment was also great! He tied a piece of cereal onto the end of a string of yarn and then taped the string to the end of a desk. He then comb my hair, creating lots of static electricity. Then, Marshall took the comb and placed it near the cereal piece. When he moved the comb the cereal moved with it. Super, cool!
I absolutely LOVE teaching and think first grade is totally awesome! I am married to the most amazing husband in the world, who is also a teacher and coach. I enjoy going to his football games, shopping, swimming, crafting, and traveling.
