Kinderbuddy and 4th Grade Buddy Turkey Project

We got together this morning with our fourth grade buddies.  We created turkeys that were unique to each of us.  Each scholar colored their turkey based on answers to questions such as "Are you a boy or a girl?, Do you have siblings?, etc."   Our turkeys also have the same number of feathers as our age.  We always enjoy working with our fourth grade buddies.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Dance Party

In case you didn't hear, our class earned a dance party with Mr. Godfrey, our physical education teacher.  We won the Purple Paw award this week for our extra work on Go Foods.  Check out the video of us on Mr. Godfrey's blog.  We know that go foods such as oatmeal and rice give you energy.  We used lots of energy during our dance party!  We really enjoyed dancing in a darkened gym with strobe lights swirling around us.

Four Winds Science

Today Four Winds volunteers helped us learn about camouflage and animal disguises.  We saw a slide show of different animals and how they either blend in, or have bright colors to warn predators that they taste or smell bad.  Students thought it was interesting that frogs are lighter on the bottom so that fish think they are the sky and dark on the top so that predators, like the blue heron, think they are water.  Outside we pretended we were birds searching for worms.  We noticed it was much easier to find the worms (yarn pieces) that were a different color than the ground.   Finding the gray and brown worms that blended into the ground were much more difficult.

Morning Greeting

One of our favorite things to do each morning is to greet each other.  It starts our morning off in such a positive way.  We all have smiles on our faces as we greet our friends.  Our class likes to do a variety of greetings including Hello Neighbor, Who Took the Cookie From the Cookie Jar, Bowling, and Ball Toss.  We particularly like greetings where we get to move.  This morning we did the Spider Web Greeting.  It is definitely going to be added to our favorites list.
