Egg-cited for Spring (break!)

**This was supposed to have been posted back on 3/30 but I just noticed the draft never posted! Oops! Better late than never, I suppose.**

March 30th--Today is the last day of school before spring break and boy, are we ready! It has been a busy couple of weeks with the close of ISTEP+ and moving straight into Acuity. The final trimester of the year is in full swing and the last progress reports go home on 4/26. As a small break from the hustle and bustle, we skipped morning work one day last week to color and cut paper eggs to display. They turned out pretty cute!

As a math activity, which will slide us into our graphing unit after break, we spent some time using jelly beans in math. They had a ball sorting, graphing and comparing the different colors of jellybeans.

Finally, some students in the class created puppet shows to retell a fable or tall tale. We invited a primary class in to view the puppet shows this afternoon and they really enjoyed them! Here is a photo:
