Our First Week back in 2013

We always start the beginning of the week putting our alpha pictures in our books... and going through our letter bin...
To celebrate the start of Winter .... school ended before break before Winter really started... We read The Mitten.... our craft to go along with the book was to lace up cardstock mittens...put all the animals inside the mitten... and then decorated them with glitter....
The finished mittens...
We made these yummy Snow Shovel Cookies... recipe found here... They are chocolate chip cookies...with pretzels...dipped in white chocolate...
Our Letter of the week "l".... we made "l" is for "l"ollipops!

We did an experiment to see which solution would do the best job to clean a dirty penny. I got the experiment from here.  We used vinegar and salt (1/2 C vinegar to 2 teaspoons salt), water and soap, and water.
Turns out the vinegar and salt made the pennies shiny and new looking.... but make sure to rinse them off... or they turn green!

See what others are up to this week:

Wow! Your school looks fun and organized! Two elements I find hard to combine in our school day. :) It's either fun OR organized. (smile) great projects and experiment!
