We love listening to the Jack Johnson soundtrack cd from the movie Curious George. Today, we watched a video clip where he sung his song about the 3 R's with a group of elementary student's. We sang along with them and continued our discussion on ways we can reduce, reuse and recycle.

We took empty milk and juice jugs and turned them into personal watering cans! We rinsed out the jugs, peeled off any labels and painted them with spring designs and colors. To finish the project off, we poked holes in the lid for the water to come out like a real watering can.
Taking our first step in keeping our Earth Day promises, we took a trip outside this morning to clean up our Earth! Making our school a trash free zone was a lot of fun! Taking a look outside it did not appear to have much trash. However, once we went out there we found more than we thought we would. We filled up a good amount in a large trash bag. We did our part today and hope that others will too =).

Today, we wrote our very own Earth Day promises. The various promises from my class were to not throw trash outside, recycle and to pick up litter. They had some great ideas! After we wrote the sentences we painted a picture of a clean and healthy Earth.
During math time today, we practiced telling time on clocks for a mini-lesson. The students sat in front of a partner. I called out a time to make on their clock. Each student put the time on their individual clocks and showed their partner. I also made the time on my clock and showed the class. If they had the time incorrect, the partner helps them make the correct time on the clock. We are only working with telling time to the hour and half hour.
