The city, the country and busses. Oh my!

This is WAY late but here is what my students did last week.

We read City & Country Mouse.
Then discussed what a city and country are.
Then talked about the differences and similarities of both.

We then made a mural.
Here is a closer look at our country...
and a closer look a our city.

 Later in the week we read the Wheels on the Bus and made Deanna Jump's school buses. We used the initial sound of our names to make a cute little ditty. The students LOVED it!
So then we added them to our murals.
 Class B did this a week earlier and here are their buses.
I think it all came out so dang cute!

My school is fortunate enough to have several iPads that we are allowed to check out. I checked out 2 and we played with the Wheels on the bus app all week. It was a ton of fun. Here are some screen shots.

All, in all it was a great week. I hope I get more like it.

On another note...
I got a notice the other day from Donors Choose telling me that my project Sit and Learn now qualifies for a match offer from CenturyLink. Funding is not guaranteed but it does fit the criteria. Now I just have to get half of it funded. The best part is that I don't have much to go. So I am asking a favor from you all. Would you please help me spread the word about my project. Could you post about it on your Facebook and Twitter pages?

In more Donors Choose news Stephen Colbert and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have teamed up to create the Stephen and Melinda Gates Foundation. Why? Well, to get more money in the hands of teachers, that is why. For every photo you upload they will donate $5.00 to Donors Choose.

I want to once again...

Give a big thank you to the wonderful people who are voting for my Donors Choose project, Sit & Learn, daily on Sonic's Limeades Learning page. It has made a huge difference for me. Did you know that if you vote you could get a FREE Medium Cherry Limeade for YOU! Just a bit of a bribe. :p


  1. I donated to your project, I hope you get it funded before the match off goes away!
