Scoop Dig Scoop Dig — Fun at the Beach
Posted on July 7, 2013 at 10:15 pm by and

Scoop scoop. Dig dig. That’s what I do with the sand when I go to the beach to look for sand crabs. I go to where the waves crash into the sand then I scoop up wet sand into my hand and wait to see if it tickles. If it does, there’s probably sand crabs.

I was at the beach again today with my friends and tried something different. I went closer to the ocean and dug a hole in the sand, then when the ocean waves moved in, I’d dig my hands under the sand and pulled out the sand. I’d slowly move the sand away to see if there’s any sand crabs — and there were lots!

Scoop, dig, scoop, dig — that’s the fun I had today at the beach looking for sand crabs with my friends.

Have you ever caught or seen sand crabs before?

Did they scare you or tickle you?

Tide Pools

I love going to the beach. I love the tide pools because you can find sand dollars in there. I found two whole sand dollars and pieces of others. The ones I kept were already dead, and found an alive one. The alive one is green. When they are dead, they are white or grey. Star fish and snails eat the sand dollars.

Have you ever found sand dollars at the beach?

What do you like to do at the beach?

For Christmas, I already got one thing I wanted, and that’s for Davo to stay with us.


The other thing I really want is a new desk. I wrote Santa a note, but I am worried he won’t get it in time. So, I thought I could put it on my blog, but I don’t know if Santa will see it:

Does Santa know how to blog? And if so, will he get my list?

Will you help me by taking the poll?

Get your own Poll!

Do you think Santa will get my list?
What’s on your list?
>Vegemite Power!

Miss W came to my class. She was talking to us, and asking questions and answering our questions about animals in Australia


She showed us some stuff in her bag. She had Davo and she had the card with a Tasmanian Devil on it.


She also brought Vegemite for us to try another day. So, my mom came to our class to help us try out the Vegemite, and that was our snack. 


Here’s a show I made for you about our trying Vegemite:

We ate our Vegemite on plain crackers with butter and a tiny amount of Vegemite. I loved it. It reminded me of soy sauce, and I love adding soy sauce to my food, especially rice, vegetables, and chicken.

Have you had food from a different country? Did you like it?
Have you ever had Vegemite? If so, did you like it?
How do you like to eat your Vegemite?
>Curious George Stays with Em

Our class mascot is Curious George. Every weekend George gets to go home with someone from class because he can’t stay at school all by himself. The Principal picked my name this time, so George got to stay with me! 



I’ll tell you a little about it on my Audioboo:
Curious George (mp3)


Look at my Capzles story pictures and play the video on my on the last slide to see what we did this weekend.

I had so much fun with George! My favorite was going to the Arizona Sea Life Aquarium, but they had the big shark exhibit and turtle exhibit closed. I told George it would be okay because I’ll go again some time and make a video for him to watch on my blog.

What do you think George’s favorite was?
If George went to your house, what would he say was his favorite?

I checked out a book from the library on Kangaroos. I want to learn more about them because they live in Australia.


Watch my movie to hear what I learned.

Did you learn anything new?
What do you know about kangaroos?
