Somehow, it’s just more fun practicing reading when you are wearing a costume.
Later, we had a google hangout with Ms. Lirenman’s class in Surrey and compared the ways we celebrated Halloween…
…and made some yummy, ghostly snacks.
For those of you who were wondering… here is one set of directions for making those delicious cookie spiders.
Reading with a flashlight in a dark room is so much more interesting than any other way of reading, so that is what just what we did on this spookiest of days.
Later, we made some yummy spiders. The students will be posting the directions for making these on their blogs soon!
We “chatted” via Skype with two different classes this week. The first was with Mrs. Elder’s grade one/two class in Coronach. We chatted to find out what strategies the other class had used to solve the problems we gave them and to tell them how we solved the one they gave us.
The second call was with Ms. Lirenman’s class in Surrey, B. C. Four of my students and four of hers acted out their Halloween costumes for the other class to guess. Then, each class got to ask two questions about things that they wondered about the other class.
With the help of our craft expert Sandra and her glue gun savvy assistants, we made some Halloween crafts today. Just look at these hard-working and happy children.
As part of the representing strand in our language arts curriculum, we represented what we would be for Halloween with our bodies for our friends to guess. Can YOU guess what we’ll be?
