Today's school............

Thought I'd share some of our notebook pages from our planet unit. We just finished up the last bit this morning. We did Solar System Alliterations. Here's a sampling of what we came up with:
1. Pluto is a Purple Planet
2. Mercury & Mars are Made of Marshmallows
3. The Spaceship Soared past Saturn & the Sun
Jon & Ashley both read 'The Tell-Tale Heart' by Edgar Allan Poe today. So proud at how Jon's reading has taken off. Didn't have time for read-aloud time with Jon this morning, so I told him to see how much he could do on his own & if there were words he didn't understand, we would look them up later. When I got home this afternoon, he had read the whole thing & told me all about it. There were a few words like 'Audacity' that he didn't recognize, but we made a list & he's going to look those up tomorrow for his vocab words. blogger isn't co-operating right now for me to be able to upload the planet pages.....will just do that in the morning.
