Poem a Day Challenge #12

Good morning students! I had a great time meeting your parents for the conferences this week. You should all be proud of the growth you’ve made already this year as a learner. 🙂

Please continue to keep up with the challenge during the weekend.

Please post the link to your poem in the comments section.

Don’t forget to leave comments on other people’s blog!

Here is a photo of the larvae we saw in 1B’s  class! Maybe this will inspire you to write a poem about it! 🙂



Oobly Oobleck Fun

For Read Across APIS day this year, we had a Dr. Seuss theme.

I read the story Bartholomew and the Oobleck and then we made our own oobleck.

Directions for oobleck: Mix 4 tablespoons of cornstarch, with 2 tablespoons of water, and food dye. Then you have your lovely oobleck!

Here is a poem I wrote about it:

An Ode to Oobleck
