BRRR!  It's cold here in my little Texas town.  18 to be exact.    We had to call parents Thursday because we let out early due to the weather and no school on Friday.  I am starting to get a little stir crazy staying inside. 

This past week, we worked on the story "Seasons." 
Brainpop Jr. has a video for each season, so we watched the "Spring" video and then filled in the spring section of our anchor chart that is shown below.   The students then wrote a 5 sentences about spring.  (My bad- I didn't get a picture of the writing.)

If your school doesn't have a subscription to brainpop jr., I highly recommend it!  It has more than science on the website.  Well worth the money!
We then continued with each season - watching the video, filling in the anchor chart and writing about the season.

On Friday, we were going to write our cinquain poems about one of the seasons, but will have to put it off until Monday since we didn't have school.  Here is the link to last years poems if you want to check them out.
Hope everyone is staying warm!!!!
