Making Butter!

Our farm animal of the week was the cow. We made butter by shaking the heavy whipping cream. It was HARD work!!

Finally...we got to taste it.

Then, we created a graph!
Most kids LIKED the butter!

Our Farm Unit and Smartboard

The kids have been SO busy! They LOVE the SmartBoard and are becoming technology masters!!

We began our farm unit by creating farmer self-portraits and writing the sight word "the".

We read THE THREE LITTLE PIGS, then made pig pouches to sequence the story. Ask your child about the wolf. It was their favorite character!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!

We are participating in an alphabet exchange with other students throughout the country. We were assigned the letter "A" and each student created an apple out of it. Today we received our first letter from a school in Allen, Texas. They sent us the letter "M" decorated with monkeys. Using Google Maps, we found Allen.

Today, I will mail our letters to the different schools.
