We started our Monday morning with a journal question and our morning meeting. We jumped right into daily 5…..but first, we took our shoes off. Why not?! We wanted to make Monday exciting
During read to self, Ms. Lewis taught us about character traits! We read a few stories together and Ms. Lewis modeled how we find character traits. We also talked about some examples. Tomorrow, we will get to think about the character traits of the characters in our own stories! We started word work next. During word work, we did something a bit different. Ms. Mcvearry made each of us a word back; in our word bank, we will be able to find all the spelling words we have had in the past! So, during word work, we took time to write in the words we have already had, and now it’s just something we will do each week! We will also get to use our word bank during work on writing
We started math. We continued to work in our workbook after we did problem of the day! Then, it was time to celebrate all the November birthdays in class–Elie, Sam, and Lily…and Ms. Lewis what a treat!!!
After we ate all the sugar, we were off to art then we went right to lunch! After lunch we got to go outside until Jewish studies. We had to come inside a bit early because of the weather, but we still had fun!
Tuesday morning we were so busy we started our morning meeting early! We jumped into work on writing. Most of us got to finish our first narrative!! Keep an eye on our blogfolios to see them and hear our reflection. Also, you may be able to see them on Intergenerational Day (November 26th, 2014). If we were able to finish our first narrative, we got to start on a second one that is all about us!!!
We also did read to self before we headed off to PE. When we came back it was time for snack! After snack we worked in our workbook during math. We finished with enough time to play freeze dance before lunch!
We went right from lunch, to music, to Jewish studies.
On Wednesday we were excited to be heading to the science lab after our journal and morning meeting! We got to experiment with light and shadows! We made our own puppets and got to look at their shadows. Check out our science bulletin board for our work!
After science we were off to PE and then we came back to have snack. When snack was over, it was time to start math. We are getting really good with our adding and subtracting!! It is a good thing we get so much time to practice. We worked in our workbooks until it was time for lunch.
After lunch we began work on writing. Most of us finished our hamburger writing!! Ms. Lewis started to help us post them to our bolgfolio with a reflection, take a look! Those of us who finished their hamburger writing, we got to start a new piece of writing that we are using in art too!! It’s another narrative, but this one is all about US!! We were so busy working that we lost track of time and were a tad late to Jewish studies! Oy!!
Thursday was such a FUN day!!! We were sure busy though, whew! We had our morning meeting and did a spelling review word search to start our day. Then, we did a project for math! We made flower clocks. They are all on display in our classroom, on the math bulletin board..come by and take a peak! We made a clock face, and numbered it. Then we added petals that tell us what the numbers mean, like when you count by 5’s! We even used leaves for the hands on the clock; a long leaf for the minute hand, and a shorter one for the hour hand. We had to take a break for PE and we finished when we came back. We got to have snack, too!
Between our flower clock and PE, we used all our time and started AR quizzes after snack. We took our quiz with Ms. Lewis and went to the library to pick out a new book with Mrs. Mcvearry. There will be NO AR QUIZZES next week. Our next AR quiz will be Thursday, December 4th. When we finished AR, we headed to lunch.
When we got back from lunch, it was finally time to start the PARTY part of our PJ day!!!!!! Mrs. Scharf brought us fruit and chocolate covered popcorn. What a treat!!! Ms. Lewis brought in a special move—Rio 2!!!!!!!! We got to relax and enjoy until it was time to go to Jewish studies
COMING SOON TO 1st GRADE…………………..
Next week we only have 2 and a half days of school, one of them being Intergenerational Day!! We will use these few days to review and catch up on work we may have missed. There will be no homework packet, but we will be busy during the day. We will also use this time to have some fun
