To honour our fathers (or other significant people in our lives), the students baked muffins and made cards. Many of the students were hoping their dad would want to share his muffins. I’ll find out next week how that worked out…
This week we have been learning the different ways to make an “a” say its name. We did a word sort and made lists and drew pictures.
Then, we made videos to show how much we had learned. Check the students’ blogs to see these creations about The A Sound. These girls were able to (mostly) work on this project despite being squished together.
At the literacy evening this week, the students got a chance to see and touch a peregrine falcon, thanks to Larry Going who was good enough to bring his in for us.
Interestingly, this bus also appeared in our classroom one day while the students were working…
What a great breakfast we had together this morning! Yum, yum. Thank you parents for providing the fruit and cheese. We also had a bunny make an appearance in our classroom and everyone got to find out what a bunny actually feels like.
This is one of my favourite times of the school year, as students begin to realize that they can read themselves all or at least part of those library books they have been signing out for their parents to read to them. It’s so exciting for me as a teacher and for the students as well.
