Davo’s Visit Continues

Posted on

The last fews days Davo spent in our class were very eventful for him.  He was able to participate in a lot of fun things.  Here are some of the events he experienced:

Davo took some time to visit with Clifford, Curious George, Elmer, and Olivia.  He remembers getting to know these book characters as he read them.  

What do you think Clifford would say to Davo?

Davo spent time with us in our school habitat.  He liked looking at the pond, vegetable gardens, and plants native to Arizona.

What type of vegetables do you think grow in our garden during the winter in Arizona?

I got to rock climb with Davo during our PE class.  He needed help to start out, but got the hang of it really quick.  I was there to support him.


What main muscles do you think we used the most when we climbed the rock wall?

In math we were learning about faces, edges and vertices in math.  We created a table to organize what we learned by drawing on our desk with dry erase markers . Davo was worried that we were writing on our desks, but we told him that it easily comes off and saves paper!  He helped me count the number of edges on a rectangular pyramid.

How many edges do you think are on a rectangular prism?

Davo helped Addison and I buddy read a book.  We are challenging ourselves with this chapter book.  It is longer than we are used to.  The book is called “Emily Windsnap and the Dream-Makers Garden” written by Liz Kessler.

Have you ever challenged yourself with a book?

We are growing a Christmas tree until Christmas so that we can have a Christmas tree in our classroom. To plant the tree, we had to follow these steps:

  1. Get the soil and water. Put it in a cup or bowl.
  2. Then we stir it.
  3. Put the seed in.  Push the seed in so the soil covers it.

Listen to our Audioboo story for the steps we followed to plant our tree. At the end, we tell you what it needs to grow.

The Christmas tree needs water and sunlight to grow, and it will be 3 feet tall.  We hope it grows big enough so we can decorate it for Christmas.  Stayed tuned for the progress of our tree. 

Does your family have Christmas trees for the holiday? 

How do you decorate your tree?
