We did a science experiment with pennies in honor of Abraham Lincoln this week also. We put the copper pennies into 4 different substances after making predictions about what would happen. We found out that the mixture of vinegar and salt causes the copper to shine.
Our Phonics lesson on Friday was about the -ar "chunk" that is found in so many words. After a brief explanation I sent the kiddos off with their partners to make a list of -ar words on a jar...those smarty pants had soooo many words that I didn't even think of! :)
Next week we will talk about dental health and then we will begin our month long unit on Dr. Seuss...my fave! :)
