Today we investigated fractions by sharing “brownies” with people. We also culminated our sound unit by making instruments. Boy did we have fun. Each child had to explain what was making the sound and many found several ways to make different sounds on the same instrument. We talked about the different pitches we heard in the same instrument. We decided that size is not the only thing that can change the pitch! We think that what the object is made out of effects the pitch, too! What great scientists I have this year!! We continued on the vowel sound search. We were perplexed to see that that ou team can make a short u sound like in trouble. Weird! We are trying to figure out how that happened and if there are more words like that. We read another legend. We are pretty sure that legends are stories that explains how something came to be like an island, flowers or the sun. We are looking at these folktales to see what we would like to write for our very own folktale.
