We made slime last week. We used glue, water, glitter, and Sta-Flo to make our slime.

First, the kids dumped the glue into a big bowl.

Then, they added water to the glue to thin it a little bit.

Next, the kids added glitter to the glue mixture.

Then, the kids added Sta-Flo to the mixture and they stirred it a lot.

When it looks like this, it is done.

Finally, the kids got to play with their slime. 

This was so much fun that I made it at home with my own kids.

Election 2016

Today is election day. We learned about voting. We visited the polling place that is always at our school. The poll workers gave the kids "I Voted" stickers! We made patriotic hats.

We had elections for our favorite Disney character (Dumbo, Bambi, or Stitch).

Each student voted.

We ran out of time to count our votes. Tomorrow morning we will tally the votes and see who won.

We have been learning about pumpkins. Here are some of the fun things we did. We read about pumpkins and drew life cycles of a pumpkin.

We did pumpkin math. Each group got a small pumpkin. The kids counted the ribs on the pumpkin.

They measured the pumpkin's height with Unifix cubes.

 They measured the circumference of their pumpkin with a string.

They figured out that pumpkins float.

They counted the seeds inside their pumpkin. I made a lot of circles on their white papers and the kids put ten seeds in each circle. Then we counted by tens to see how many seeds were in the pumpkin.
