Next week we will be doing some physical science experiments because the kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE science and experiments! On Thursday, Dr. Dino is coming from the zoo to show the children some fossils and talk to them about paleontology! Whoo hoo! (It doesn't hurt that his wife is the art teacher at our school and arranged this for us!)
Then during our last week we will be doing a unit about the ocean. My roommoms are planning an end-of-the-year ocean-themed party. They are soooo wonderful! I couldn't do it without them!
My PGP this year (how we are evaluated) focused on non-linguistic representations, so I created some Thinking Maps and graphical organizers for our ocean theme:
