Tuesday, September 28
Today we discussed how hot it was and then we talked about all the seasons. Ryder told us it is fall. Next, we read a wonderful book entitled All Falling Down by Gene Zion. All this led to our question of the day: Why do leaves fall from the trees?
Sarah: because it's a different season, like Spring. I have an avocado tree. They are really yummy. I eat avocados with sauce.
Cassidy: It's because of the wind. We don't have any trees at my house, but we have pretty white flowers.
Colin: The wind does it. Sometimes I see them fall. There are trees in the jungle, and monkeys like to live in the trees. They live at the zoo too.
Gage: Because it's hot and the leaves turn red and orange. We have a bunch of trees in our garden. It's fun to pile them up and jump on them.
Ian: It's because it got really windy. I'm going to paint a green leaf.
Ethan: The wind blows really hard. I have a tree that I can climb up. It has lots of little round things I can pick off. I can climb to the tippity top of that tree.
Shay: I'm not sure, but the wind makes them go down.
Garrett: I have a tall tree at my house, but it's the wind that makes the leaves go.
Ryder: Because it's fall and Halloween is in the fall too. I'm going to be a shark for Halloween. We can't have it at school because it starts at night time.
