Inspector Hopper and TpT Sale

Monday, May 6, 2013 1 comment
I love the story "A Boat Disappears" that we read last week in our basil.  I love all the humor in it and I love that my firsties actually got it!  Such a cute story.  Students had to decide what kind of detective they thought Insepector Hopper was and then they had to show evidence from the story to support their reasons.

This activity can be found in my Journeys® unit "A Boat Disappears" that can be purchased on TpT or TN.
All my units will be on sale for the
Teacher Appreciation Sales going on at TpT and TN.
Be sure and use the code TAD13 when checking out at TpT in order to get the addition 10% off.
Happy Shopping!

We did our worm study this week and the kids loved it!  They begged to take their worms home and I let them on Thursday.  These are a few stories I got this morning and I was impressed to see that a few of their scientific minds were still experimenting:

1.  I put my worm in lemonade to see if he could swim and he died.
2.  I cut my worm in half to see if he would grow a new tail and he didn't, he died. 
3.  My grandpa and I let my worm go in the garden.  (so sweet)
4.  One mom informed us that the worm is now a new pet and is sitting right beside the fishbowl.

Here are a few things we did with our worms this week:

We finished up our study with a little worm dessert
and we read this book:
