IT'S NOT A....

...BOX OR A FINGERPRINT!
The books and "Not a Box" drawings from Library along with the "It's Not a Fingerprint!" book.

The Kindergarten and 1st grade classes (minus Mrs. Dorsey's class who has Think Tank on Friday), have successfully completed their "It's not a ..." books, as well as investigated the shapes of their own fingerprints. (See the last post for more details on this challenge).

As it turns out, looking at fingerprints on tiny fingers is a bit more difficult than anticipated, however your children rose to the challenge. With magnifying glass in hand, they determined which category their pointer finger fell into and then graphed their prints along with their classmates. Stop by the Learning Lab to see the graph!










In addition to investigating their fingerprints, students used their creative minds, and picture smarts, to turn a basic fingerprint into something else. Your children thought of things I never would have! Make sure to ask them to read you their books, or, to stop by the Learning Lab if they chose to have theirs displayed.





  
Until next time...
