Recess Bliss by P.C. What a beautiful September day! We started of the day by setting up our work page. What are the 3 things I look for at the top of every page. We did our spelling word today which was "dinosaur", we worked on our 3 introduction sentences for "how to make a cake", and we doodled a dog. In math we worked on making our writing hand stronger and practiced printing our numbers. We also did an addition sheet for digits 0-9. We reviewed patterns and talked about pattern rules. All patterns have a pattern rule that tell you how to make the pattern. They always follow the same format in grade two, "start with ___ and _____ each time". Can you make a pattern from the rule "start with 6 and add 2 each time"? If you can't, dont worry, you will be able to soon! After recess we had language arts with Mrs. Hill. She went over compound words. What is a compound word? Is cowboy a compound word? After lunch we read another chapter from our book. What do you think Jack and Annie saw flying outside the window of the tree house? Why? We also talked about bus safety. How long should you be at the bus stop before the bus comes? Why? Next we had PE with Mrs. Hache. I could hear lots of music and see the bean bags. What did were you doing? When we came back to the classroom we worked on our book of gratitude. What is something that made you smile today? Then we packed up and went home. Students did pack a memo today, you should be able to see it on the front page of the website very soon. Get lots of sleep and I will see you tomorrow for the last day of week one!
