We're on Christmas Vacation from school

We're on Christmas Break
I guess that means we stay in our PJ's all day and watch Christmas movies

Learning about clouds and America

Our week of December 5th-8th

We started our study on clouds this week.  Learning the main types of clouds and their scientific names.

Here K is painting you can see he added some rain to a few of his clouds.  This project was needed for his writing paper the following day.

Writing about the type of cloud that he painted a picture of

This is our cloud chart where we wrote some features of clouds that K knew before we started our study of clouds.

We are also learning about our country.  This is a short series as we are just doing short series this school year and next school year we are planning on covering the USA in depth state by state.
This week we are learning about the flag, our freedoms, the symbols of our country.

This next week we are working on finishing up our reading and phonics books and getting ready to start the next set of books after Christmas.
We are doing a fire theme this week for community helpers that we started last week but this week is hands on.  Look fwd to the pictures at the end of the week.

Have a joyous week
