Today, we went on our first field trip to the Kansas History Museum. We had a great time looking at all things Kansas. The students even went on a scavenger hunt to find the Kansas symbols that we have been learning about. Also, the Wizard of Oz characters were all there in honor of Kansas' 150th birthday. The kids loved meeting them and getting their autographs!
We also finished making our Kansas fans in reading groups. We made them because we are "fans" of Kansas. :-) On one side of the fan, we drew our favorite state symbol. On the other side was a picture of Kansas' state capital, and we wrote "I love Kansas."
Lastly, V celebrated her 6th birthday today. She brought in delicious cupcakes and fruit punch. It was a great ending to our day.
