This week was Annika's "Surfer of the Week" in our classroom. She brought in several different pets that her and her family have at their house. We got to meet their turtle, dog and hamster. They did not bring the cat from home or the fish. We enjoyed getting to learn about how each animal eats, sleeps, plays and what is needed to take care of them on a daily basis.

This week was all about Earth Day! We learned ways that even five and six year olds can help protect the Earth from harm.
- We cleaned up trash outside of our school.
- We practiced and read an Earth Day reader's theater to other classrooms to help spread awareness.
- We painted a picture using our hands above a handwritten promise to the Earth about what we promise to do to help keep it healthy.
- We completed a recyclable art project using empty milk cartons and turning them into personalized watering cans!
Below is a video showing all of the fun we had this week!

During Olivia S.'s "Surfer of the Week" her dad brought in their pet lizard named Larry. Larry was pretty calm and still for the most part, but it was fun getting to learn about the lizard as well as about her Dad's job working with trains!

During our Eric Carle week we watched a video where we saw how Eric Carle illustrates his books. He told us that he uses tissue paper to create his pictures. He takes white tissue paper and paints it before adding it to his drawing. We took out that step and used colored tissue paper to place on an illsutration of his from the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
