Cracking Up While Learning!

We had an "eggcellent"  end to our week as we enjoyed our bit of Spring weather and prepared for our April Spring break! At Morning Meeting we balanced an egg on a plastic fork and passed it around the circle. 

After filling our popcorn jar students were asked to make proposals on how we should celebrate this latest accomplishment.  
Suggestions included a painting party, an egg hunt and dying of eggs.  Inviting the students to vote, we then graphed the results. We had an "eggcellent" time celebrating time celebrating today.

Our fun started when we all participated in a sight word egg hunt!  60 eggs, containing the 60 words we have learned thus far were hidden on the playground!  We went hunting with a list and when we found a word, read it and checked it off!

We used eggs as fun learning tools.     We cracked eggs filled with CVC words and tapped out sounds to read them!  At a center, students cracked them open, found a corresponding picture on a worksheet and then wrote the cvc word the correct way using only lowercase letters! This was a challenge but was also a fun activity.

We had other eggs that had CVC word families written on the exterior and students could create their own words.

Sports themed eggs held math addition and subtraction equations.  We are becoming quite proficient at our math facts!  

Our color lessons and explorations also continued as we dyed eggs with shaving cream and food coloring and dye and vinegar!  What fun!

At this point in our school year some of us are a little "fried" and the start the April spring break has us "boiling" over with excitement!  Whether you will be in Town or are "scrambling" to get away for a few days, please know that Ms. Miliano and Mrs. Hoyt wish everyone an enjoyable and restful break.  We are looking on the "sunny side" ... as we will see our "eggcellent" students in just 10 days!  

Be sure to see our next blog post in we share our learning about Magnets with Mr. Musselman!
