Today we went to a special assembly to see the younger children in Odyssey of the Mind do the plays they will be doing this weekend at their competition. The children enjoyed the plays because they all included humor and song. We hope they do well this weekend at their competition.
Yesterday we watched a video with a song about animal external features. I hope you saw the song, and that your child sang it to you. We sorted animal picture cards and animals with our table group. We had to decide as a group how to sort the animals and work together to make one sort. We continued our discussion of animal parts today. We read a book called Creature Features by Steven Jenkins that showed 25 animals with unusual external features. Each animal talked about why they have the unusual external feature and how it helps them to survive. Ask me to tell you about some of the animals we learned about today!
