We had a great time at the farm, can’t you tell? Some of us have already asked if we can go back! We would also like to send a special thank you to the family at Barr Ridge Farms for making our day so special and the PTO for funding our trip! What an experience we had on that special day! It was GREAT! Thanks for the smiles! Be sure to leave us a comment about your favorite part of the voicethread!!
In this collage you can see us on our trip to Barr Ridge Farms! I can’t wait to get back to school to create our new voicethread. My favorite part of the visit was everything! I enjoyed being in the corn maze, on the hayride, on the farm tour, learning about pumpkins, and eating lunch. I really enjoyed having a taste of fresh chocolate milk, didn’t you? Maybe you can leave us a comment about your favorite activity at the farm. When you are commenting please note the new options for making a comment. You can chose to type your comment, record your voice, or even use your webcam to make a comment. Don’t forget we are all going to get a chance to make a voicethread next week. So think about what you want to tell the world about your trip to the farm. There were so many things to do, I don’t think we’ll run out of things to say! Thanks for your comments!
We have made predictions about many things since school started. We’ve predicted which apple would taste the best, what might happen next in stories we’ve read, and everyday we make predictions about the weather. As you know, our trip to the pumpkin patch and corn maze is just around the corner. I am asking you to make several predictions on this blog post. 1. What do you think the weather will be when we take our trip? You may want to click here to check the weather forecast for this week before you tell us your prediction. 2. How many seeds will we find inside our own “great pumpkin”? This may be a guess, but think about pumpkins you may have carved in the past. 3. Do you think that roasted pumpkin seeds taste good? Remember, in our class when we make a prediction…we always experiment to find out if we’re right, so your last prediction will be to tell our blog friends how you think we are going to find the answers to our questions. Friends feel free to participate in our pumpkin patch predictions as well. As always, thanks for commenting!
Take a look at this video. Does it remind you of some things that we talked about this week in school? When I watched the video, I thought that it was really neat that Calliou got to taste his apples before he chose which ones he would pick. We did the taste test in school – did you tell your parents which apple tasted the best to you? I also thought about our class going on a trip like Calliou’s class. Do you think that you would like to take a class trip? What would you like to see at a farm?
