Snipets from Jacob's Water Fact File

As we study rivers, oceans and other water habitats, Jacob is compiling a notebook, the Water Fact File. Weekly he includes information from books or places we have been. It has been fun to work on and I think he will enjoy his binder full of information when it is complete.

Here are the pages he created today. We finally printed some beach photos and he wrote a little description to go with them. Today we also printed some of the photos from our nature exploration at lunchtime. We had learned about captions recently, Jacob glued his photos on the pages and wrote his captions to the sides.

Jacob, you are doing a GREAT job!!! I love the pictures and all the captions. I can't wait to see what else you add to your notebook this year! :)

Awesome notebook!
This is such a nerdy observation, but...do you teach them D' Nealian handwriting? If so, I was just curious as to how you decide to go with that? I taught at a school that taught D' Nealian and those fancy little k's always made me wonder. :)

Hey Jill!

Yep that would be D'Nealian. I learned it in school and I taught it for the one year I taught. I like how it looks (not too funky like Italic) and the ease of transition from manuscript to cursive. I get the workbooks from Scott Foresmann.

Great book! He (and you) should be very proud. I can't wait to get started on our nature books...
