Letter I Week

  "I" week has been INCREDIBLE!
This week our main themes were
 inchworms, ice cream and iguanas.

We made inchworms in the art center using two different techniques.

We used inchworms at the math center.  We counted, measured and estimated.

Inchworms were everywhere!
(We even had inchworms in OUR DRINKS!)

We graphed our favorite!  
Inchworms or iguanas?

Speaking of iguanas.  We discussed INTERESTING facts about iguanas.

We used iguanas for non standard units of measuring.

(I found these at the Dollar Tree!)

We created iguanas in the art center.  The children loved
adding embossing powder to give the iguanas texture.

I think our finished product is INDESCRIBABLE!

We invented insects.

We made homemade ice cream by shaking the mixture in plastic bags.

They needed sprinkles!

Look what Casey brought for snack!

We described ice cream and made ice cream sundaes in the art center.


To top it all off one of our sweet Gingerbread Mommies brought her 
ice cream truck and treated the entire school to ice cream.
(She is available for parties or special events.)

We had some sad news this week.
We had a funeral for our class pet rat, Whitie.
We are really going to miss him!

Our friend Shep broke his arm!
He was able to join us for a couple of hours at the end of the week.
(He is doing great!  He is a tough little guy!)
We love you Shep.

Next week we will talk about letter P and work on our pumpkin unit!
Don't forget to bring a pumpkin on Monday!
