Around Easter, we started a jelly bean unit. We made a Sing-to-Read book called, "Jelly Beans." Sing-to-Read books are set to music, and they make reading easier and entertaining. This book focused on colors and numbers. We worked hard on this book for a week, and I think their books turned out great. We also graphed jelly beans in math. I gave each student a bag of Starburst jelly beans. They sorted the jelly beans, and then graphed them all by themselves. They did awesome! After we finished graphing, we enjoyed eating the jelly beans. We also recently celebrated L's 6th birthday. She brought in delicious, pink cupcakes with juice boxes. We loved the treats!

Happy 6th Birthday L!
