January fun and 100th Day!

My grandmother came up to visit my classroom and check out our Igloo!  :)
We have been studying Polar Animals!  Check out "Penguin Penguins" app with streaming webcams of real penguins.  The kids love the underwater view!  You can also check out the penguin cams live on the web here.
We saw the first snow day of the year on Thursday.  I froze black construction paper and cut it into squares.  Take the kids and the paper outside and you can catch snow flakes without them melting!  Great for upclose observations.  Check out the book Snowflake Bentley about the first man to photograph snow. Here is his website with lots of great resources.


100th day is coming up soon
