Exploring with Magnets

Today with our 5th grade buddies we got to explore with Magnets! We will be doing more experiments and activities with Magnets in the next few weeks. Ask your child what they noticed and learned today about magnets.

Earth, Moon & Sun Song

We learned a new song today called the "Earth, Moon & Sun Song" it is sung to the tune of Farmer and the Dell. It goes, "The earth turns around, the earth turns around. Once a day, every day, the earth turns around. The moon goes 'round the earth, the moon goes 'round the earth. Once a month, every month, the moon goes 'round the earth. The earth goes 'round the sun, the earth goes 'round the sun. Once a year, every year, the earth goes 'round the sun." Thank you to My Montessori Journey for the cute idea! See us singing it in action:

Mars Art Project

Today we did a cool "Fun Friday Art Project" where we got to squish paint around underneath some cellophane to make Mars or the Sun! they came out so pretty! We hung them up on the bulletin board out in the hallway for everyone to see. Thanks to Charlotte's mom for volunteering to help us out with the project today!! Thank you Mrs Karen for the great idea!!

 Don't they look so cool?

Silly McGilly!

We had a very special visitor today...Silly McGilly! Silly McGilly is a cute little leprechaun that visits our classroom and plays tricks on us! We read the story today and put the doll by the window so that the REAL Silly McGilly would see it and know that we want him to come play tricks on us. You can get your own Silly McGilly for home here (It's pretty similar to the "Elf on the Shelf")

Silly McGilly changed all of our names so that they started with "O'" or "Mc"...
Then he filled up all of our sinks with green water!!

We were VERY excited to see all of the silly things that Silly McGilly did today! We can't wait to see what he has in store for us on Monday!
