We continue to learn about MATTER and its properties. They read with a partner about SOLIDS which included some very cool photographs (extreme close ups) and interesting subject matters (natural sponges). As they were reading, Avery got up from his desk to get one of his new acquired natural sponges wet to show his partner. Yup. The kid brought two natural sponges to school on the exact same day we were reading about them. I love my job.
