Mmmmmm! Let’s make a pie.

Put the pumpkin pie in the oven.

Keep our pie and eat it.

I ate a gigantic slice.

Now I am ready for bed.

Pumpkins are all around the place.

Under the picnic table a big pumpkin is there.

Maybe I’m going to get it.

Put the pumpkin in the car.

Keep the pumpkin and put in some light.

In the night it will glow.

Now I have a Jack ‘O lantern.

Blowing Bubbles

cloudFor our first experiment this year we wanted to find out which bubble solution would produce the longest lasting bubbles. We made a glycerine, soap and water solution in our classroom. We also had a store bought bubble solution.

We went outside and blew bubbles using each of the solutions. We did two trials. We discovered that our glycerine solution made the longest lasting bubbles. We also learned that bubbles have three layers – soap, water and soap. They surround the air which is in the middle of the bubble.

My Lost Phone

cell phoneOne day I lost my phone in my house. Here’s how it was.  I was sleeping in my bed. When the sun came up, I woke up and I looked under my pillow for my phone, but I could not find it. Later, when I got home from school, my dad was there and I asked him if he had my phone. He said, “No.” I said, “I’m going to ask Mom if she has my phone.” She said, “No,” so I checked in my mom’s bag and it was there! I said with much happiness, “I found it!”
