We had such a special treat today! My old teacher from PreSchool, Chris Faison, who also taught at the community school for many years and is a "rock hound" and passionate educator came as special guest today!! He also brought a friend, Shana, who is a geologist. We got to see some amazing fossils, even DINO POOP...and then put together a life size Model of a Apatosaurus. So so fun!!
This week we talked about how visualizing is a great skill for being an excellent reader. We read several poems, without pictures and had to visualize in our minds what was happening. Then we read a great poem called "The Balloon Man" and drew a picture to match the visualization in our mind. The kids did an amazing job!!
