Sprouting, Sticking and Reading!

On Tuesday afternoon one of our science groups planted some mustard seeds on cotton wool in some plastic drinking cups. Chrissie found a bright , warm window sill for them to sit on in the blue room. No one was allowed to touch the seeds but everyone was allowed to look at them. Today at lunch time we noticed that our mustard seeds are beginning to sprout. Can you see what looks small white tails sticking out of some of the seeds? We can't wait to see what happens next
In Sue's art class today we started work on a pasta and match stick collage. We stuck the pasta and match sticks on any way we liked with PVA glue. When we go into town tomorrow Sue is going to buy some gold spray paint. We are going to spray our collages with the paint and let them dry and then we are going to hang them in a group together on the wall. When they are finished we will take some photo's and post them in the Virtual Gallery. Sue has lots of pieces of our art work that she wants to exhibit there over the weekend too.
On Thursday mornings we go to the primary school across the road and borrow books from the library. We saw Deb there. Deb used to work at our school last year and she was really happy to see us. Kimmy works in the library and she helps us to find books.
Last week we borrowed narratives from the downstairs area. This week we borrowed information texts from the upstairs shelves. We like information books the best. The library has thousands of them! We are learning how to choose books that are easy enough for us to read by ourselves but we still like to borrow books to read with an adult too. We love sharing our books with a friend at partner reading time.
What kinds of books do you like to read?
