SueBeth's second grade students came down to our room on Friday and were such a great help. One of our Science goals for the day was to make some things that we could then take out to our "Kindergarten Tree" to help feed the animals during the winter. Even though it is February, we read the book The Night Tree by Eve Bunting and my kids loved all of the things that the family left around and on the tree for the winter animals. We also made another item for the birds that I will share next week. We used bird seed for this activity.
I always like to take pictures of the kids doing this and it was pretty muddy outside on Friday. So, look for pictures to come this week on this fun activity.

|This student so graciously modeled for me because I didn't think the picture would show how cute these turned out.|
|This part was the hit. They loved having longer hair like George Washington did!!|
We don't have school on Monday, but we do have to attend teacher in-service meetings at our high school. We will be wrapping up President's Day this coming week along with our February Units. SueBeth and I have been working really hard on some March Units this weekend. So, hope to post about those items real soon! Here is a President's Day freebie to help practice those teen numbers. Let us know if ya grab it...we love your comments.
Happy President's Day!
