Week 23

We are learning more "brain dumps" for math. These are the last two we have learned.
Ounces to Tons brain dump


If you are following us on Twitter you know we learned that "King Henry likes Diamonds BUT Diamonds Cost Money." That is how we remember how to convert measurement. We're still working on that one but the kids can tell you about the king.

Stormi Play

Our reading story this week was a play. The kids love any excuse to be able to pull out the puppets. So I let them use the puppets and read the play aloud to the class.


Friday we went bowling. The kids have been learning to bowl during PE time and this week we got to see what they have learned. I must say we had some naturals in the group. Most of them cracked me up because they would roll the ball and then just walk back (without even watching the pins fall).


Look at the concentration on Caleb's face. He was serious.



I even bowled a game with this group. I was very rusty and Aviana was a natural!
