Today we read The Cat in the Hat, by Dr Seuss.
The naughty cat balances lots of things on his body and he balances on a ball.
WE decided to try balancing, too. Susie had lots of things for us to try to balance.
Would you like to see what we did?
It's a Balancing Act! on PhotoPeach
Here are some of our ideas about all the balancing we did:
Anika- We tried balancing books on our heads so they wouldn't fall off
Halle- We balanced spoons on our hands, using one finger or two and Carolyn helped us
Quentin- With the blocks I made a big big tall tower, and then I pushed it down
Chase- I put one penguin on top of another
Eva- The tower kept falling down when it got heavier
Quentin- I didn't put the ball on the bottom because then it would fall down
Hannah- I stacked the blocks up.
Emma- Balancing the ball on the cone was hardest
Fyfe- The blocks were hard for me but I made another one and it didn't fall down
Aria and Kreashyn- The penguins were hard to balance because they kept falling down. We put the big one on the bottom.
Troy- The blocks fell down when I stacked then straight up but I made a strong castle.
We had to do it carefully and not be messy.
Great thinking, Monster Minds!
