In the computer lab we finished our 1st movies. In class we watched them. They were awesome!

At the end of the day we were deciding how to spend our money from the trail mix sale. We are going to adopt a penguin family but we have $25 extra. We are trying to decide what other animal we could help. Our choices are the beluga whale, sea turtle, or the sea otter. What is your vote?

Last week we didn't have school because it was Presidents Week. We have been very busy this week and didn't get to blog on Monday and Tuesday.

Today was Jimena's birthday. She turned 6 and her mom brought in chocolate cupcakes with green frosting. They were yummy!

We had a big mystery today. We were supposed to see a magic show but the magician was missing! We think he was practicing his dissappearing trick. I wonder when he will reappear.

This week Jimena is our student of the week. She decorated her poster and we learned that she likes to write. Anthony shared a story about Charlie Brown.

Today we decided who was going to be in what songs for our penguin play. We also started doing our MAPS testing at the computer lab this week. Some of the questions are easy and some are hard. It is helping us know what we are ready to learn.

Today we learned about preditors and prey. We learned that preditors eat other animals. Those animals are called its prey. It was funny when we acted out being a preditor and a prey. Cameron was a fish, Mrs. Power was the penguin, and Anthony was a killer whale. At first Mrs. Power turned to Cameron the fish. Mrs. Power was the preditor and Cameron was her prey. After she ate Cameron the fish she turned to swim away. All of a sudden she swam into Anthony the killer whale. Now Mrs. Power was the prey and Anthony was the preditor. Anthony gobbled Mrs. power the penguin and then swam away.
