We had a sensational week talking about S things again! We talked about the solar system, sun, stars, bleached some things in the sun, shadows, 5 senses, sharks, the sea, seeds and growing, soup and more! We made a mini-book about the five senses, and read books about them too. We ate soup, looked at different seeds and how to plant them, discussed sea life, and the big animal of the sea-- the shark! We measured different "sharks" on a paper with paper clips and a ruler- the inches side and the centimeters too. We made a shark fin and chanted the rhyme about sharks. You can learn more about the sharks info in this blog post from a few years ago. We made fingerprint fish/ sharks too!

Sorting vegetables, fruits and other foods after discussing soup!
We also finished our shadows unit, since we didn't do that last week-- it was too cloudy and rainy/snowy. But this past week was lovely!
We are looking forward to discussing Spring and St. Patrick's Day next week in school- come back to hear all about it!
Some verses about the sea and seeds...
So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
He (Jesus) also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
The Parable of the Mustard Seed
Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
