On Friday, Judd came in and drew goldfinches with us. As we were drawing, he taught us how some birds fly. A falcon dives almost vertical. A goldfinch flaps hard and stops then falls briefly until he flaps again hard. Finally the puffin (who spends 90% of their life on the water) eats so much he tries to run on the water to get lift off but is too heavy and has to wait until he digests his food to be able to fly. Judd also talked to the class about suffixes and prefixes and that if the word already has -s sounding on the end and its more than one you have to add an -es instead of another -s.
