Spring Has Sprung!

Room 6 is so happy that Spring is here! This week, we discussed the four different seasons that occur throughout the year. We read stories and talked about the different weather patterns in spring, summer, winter and fall. 

Birthday Invitations:
On Friday, we used our knowledge of the different weather patterns in each season to design our very own birthday invitations. Each child used the date of his/her actual birthday and had to pick an outdoor location to host their birthday party. The best part about this writing creation was that we got to use our very own Mr. Sketch smelly crayons!!! The children we VERY excited to design some fancy invitations! 
Be sure to ask your child where he/she chose to host their birthday party!  
We will continue working on our invitations next week. 

Fun Friday Craft: We brainstormed spring weather words, then made a Spring cloud!

The Rainbows add a pop of color into our classroom! 

Our poem this week...Hello Spring! 

New names in Room 6!
During morning meeting this week, we each got a new name! Instead of saying good morning to our friends using their actual name, each student's name changed to one of our sight words. Check out the pictures below! 

Mystery Readers!
Thank you to our mystery readers who came into our classroom on Friday! The children love hearing  stories read by family members. 😁
