Wow, It's Been A Long Time!

Everything has been going by in such a blur the past few months that I haven't had time to keep my head straight, much less blog! Sorry to leave you all with no new reading! The Knight Owls have been doing a lot of learning, and boy, do I mean a lot! Most recently, we read the entire chapter book of "Mr. Popper's Penguins" and then got to watch the recent movies for a comparison/contrast activity. With the reading of that book, we have also been reading a lot of non-fiction text about faraway places like Ireland, Mexico, Spain, and the Amazon Rainforest. In a few weeks, we should have a story of our own about the rainforest to publish here for you all to see!

We also had a visit from some Easter chicks last week...check these cuties out:

We had an awards assembly...

And so much more! There's no way I can get it all in tonight, but I will try to be better about getting posts on here to keep everyone updated for the rest of the year. There will definitely be a lot going on in the next 8 weeks. Yep, that's all that is left! Unbelievable! Future posts will include: 100th Day of School, Rainforest Story, more Easter chick pics, updated 100 Club, reading and math interactive activities, and scientific studies (a few weeks away). Keep checking back!

Black Bear Jewel

Thanks to one of my kinder's mom, I have this awesome link to show the class. We watched it today for a while, and everyone was so excited about it! It is Black Bear Jewel, a soon-to-be first time Momma Bear, in her den on a live webcam. It is amazing! I promised the kids that I would post the link so that they could watch her at home this weekend. She is expected to give birth any day. Enjoy! 

The class worked together to write a story about her. I wish I had snagged a photo of the story that they wrote. We all shared the pen, and it was a masterpiece! It went like this...

A black bear is in her den. Her name is Jewel. She will have babies. She is sleeping and she snores.
