Adventures with Lollipop

Our first few weeks of taking turns with babysitting Lollipop went quickly.  Here is what Lollipop was up to…

“We were watching movies, reading and walking.  We were having fun and he is happy to be with me.  This is the best day ever!!!!

Me and Lollipop were together and reading and he said that he likes his adventures.  We are at chapter 3, Sad-Mad-Bad.  It is page 22.  I like my day and Lollipop does too!!!

I love being with Lollipop and we are at a soccer game.  We are having fun.”

We went out with me to dinner.  I showed my friends in the neighborhood.  He watched me play video games.  It was fun.

Me and Lollipop had a doughnut and did our homework.  Then we watched cartoons.  Then ate dinner.  Then read our book.  Then went to bed.

Lollipop and I played and watched movies and this is the best day ever!  Lollipop and I read for 30 minutes of Humphrey and he liked it.  Now I’m sad because I have to bring him to our class and another kid will get Lollipop and he will have another adventure.

Lollipop and I are going to my aunt’s the 16th and 17th.  I am going to my birthday party.  I skated at Skateland with Lollipop.  Me and Lollipop went for a walk and we went to my friend’s house and we jumped on the trampoline.  Best day ever!

I was having fun with Lollipop at a lot of cool places.  I took him for a ride.  We ate together.  We played games together.  Lollipop played with my little sister Sofia.

New Friends In Class

Last week we started reading our One Book, One District book.  Friendship According to Humphrey is a lovable story about a classroom hamster who has been forced to share his classroom with a new class pet, Og the Frog.  Our class has taken to this story fast and are doing great reading it at home.

Here are our new class pets.

First, we have Lollipop who is a dear sweet hamster who will be taking turns going  home with students.  The children will need to journal about the time they spend with Lollipop and return him safe and sound the next day.  Keep an eye out for Lollipop.


Now, here are our real class pets!  We have frogs in our class too!  Meet Leo and Rosie!  We have already had fun watching them swim, eat and play.  There is also a snail who is hiding in the background.  Do you see it?


Class Community

We learned all about our words and how once we say something, we can not take it back.

We first broke into groups and squeezed out all the toothpaste from the tube.

The competition in the groups began once the teacher told us to put all the toothpaste back into the tubes.  The first team to get all the toothpaste back into the tube would win!

What did we learn?  We first learned that we are not able to get the toothpaste (any of it) back into the tube once we have squirted it all out.  Then we learned this is a lot like our words.  Once we say something, we can not take it back, even with a “sorry”.  We are a part of the classroom community and we need to respect each other and be cautious of our words.
