It was a busy day! I am so pleased that the students are coming into the classroom in the morning and getting their jobs done straight away. Before any work could really get started today we had a fire drill. It went very well! We came back inside and worked on our word wall words for the week, our spelling word (competition), our introduction for "How to Dance" and we doodled an elephant.
In math we did another listening quiz and went over how to set up our books again. We reviewed patterns and the terms Core, Element, Increasing, and Attribute. Do you know what all of those words mean? We also worked on math with a friend before recess.
After a beautiful outdoor recess we had langugage arts. We went over how to start a sentence and the 3 punctuation marks we use to stop a sentence ( . ! ? ). We also talked about indentation. What is a dent in a can? What is an indent in a story? We did a write to self about a small moment, what did we do at todays recess. We also went over our I Chart for read and write to self. What does the I stand for? (Independant). I hope you worked on building your stamina. We also had a share where some students shared about the book they were reading.
Next we had an outdoor lunch. Before the bell rang each student recieved a smiley face cookie! Thank you Tim Hortons! We then went to gym with Ms. McFarlene for tally Tuesday.
In computer we continued to work on gettting everyone logged in on their own. Colbie also stopped in to get some books. She wont be at school for few days because her eye is injured and needs to heal. She was in great spirits though! We are excited for her to return!
We finished off the day with Ms. Sturgeon and guidance. We talked about how everyone in the class might be the same, but maybe not the world. Can you think of any examples?
I signed the agenda's, a hot lunch memo went home, and packed up for the day. Get lots of sleep and I will see you tomorrow!
