Since we weren't here yesterday, I would love to hear what you did on your day off or even over the Presidents' Day weekend!
I was supposed to go to the Poconos, but I was feeling too sick on Friday that I decided to stay home. Since I didn't go I was able to celebrate my sister Valerie's 24th birthday on Saturday and succeeded in getting 9 pages done for my Research Project! Woo, almost done!
Comment below to share with the class what you did :)
Today is Groundhog Day! A day that will predict for us when Spring will finally make its arrival. If the groundhog sees his shadow, he will return to hibernation and there will be six more weeks of winter. However, if the groundhog doesn't see his shadow then spring will come earlier this year! I am hoping that the groundhog does not see his shadow because I love the warm weather and would love to see Spring come early this year!
Share your prediction with the class on what do you think will happen.
Do you think the groundhog will or will not see his shadow?
Would you prefer for there to be six more weeks of winter or for Spring to arrive earlier? Why?
I can't wait to hear your predictions and comments!
You are just about ready to start posting your Genius Hour progress on your own blogs. However, before you do so, I would like you to share with the world your awesome Driving Questions! Comment below with your driving question, share who you are working with or if you are working alone, and any research you have begun to make.
I am so excited to see where Genius Hour takes you!
People all over the world celebrate different winter holidays! Some of them include Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, and many more! My family celebrates Christmas. During the Christmas season, we decorate our house, bake cookies, and buy presents for our families and friends.
After Christmas, I traveled to Vermont, where I got to finally see snow! While I was in Vermont, it snowed for three days so there was a ton of snow on the ground. My fiancé's family and I enjoyed great dinners in the mountains, dog sledding, and snow mobiling.
I would love to hear what you all did on during the winter break. What fun activities or traditions do you celebrate with your family during the holiday season?
I hope each of you had a very happy Thanksgiving this year!
Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays! I am always thankful to be able to spend Thanksgiving with my family. Our day was filled with lots of love, laughter, and of course…lots of food! Our feast seemed endless! First, we enjoyed a delicious soup my mom made before moving on to turkey, yams, cornbread, stuffing, and so much more. We finally ended our Thanksgiving feast with a yummy pie baked by my sister. By the end of the day I was stuffed and ready for a nap!
I would love to hear all about your Thanksgiving festivities! What were some delicious foods you ate? Was there anything special that you did with your family that you would like to share?
