Once again we filled the Warm Fuzzy Jar. The reward this time was the Great Read In. Lots of children bought their blankets and soft toys plus their favourite book. The children were so excited to bring their soft toys to school, and imagine being allowed to lie all over the floor to listen to books! Wow! Pure heaven for some. Lots of them enjoyed reading to their friends or toys to begin with, and then I read to them. Here are some pictures from that day.
Another highlight from the week was science. We have started a new unit on Forces. We investigated the force of gravity. The question I posed them was whether a heavy thing falls faster than a light thing....they all experimented with dropping things from the same height....do you know the answer?
Next we investigate whether gravity makes things land with a larger bump if they are dropped from a higher height. It was pretty hard to get our marbles into the bowl of sand, but we kept persevering!
One more thing....Genius Time.....here are some pictures to show you how our second round of Genius Time creations are looking like after the second week of making.
We have our presentations in three weeks so all the children are busy sticking, gluing and improving their designs to share with everyone in Week 8.
Week 6 is going to be fantastic as we have Arts Week so make sure you come back to check out all the photos of the children completing their paintings and sculptures.
