I wish I had a long weekend too! Us teachers will be busy at school tomorrow learning more about social responsibility.
Today felt like a very busy day. Students were stuck in the classroom for both recess and lunch so they had extra playtime which they were happy about.
This morning we generated a list of familiar words with the sound ‘ou’. We came up with quite a list:
We had our regular playtime during which I read with each student. Today we practiced the list of Kindergarten sight words. Please keep this sheet handy at home to practice if you ever have a few minutes here or there. After recess we had calendar followed by a writing activity in students’ journals. They chose three pictures from the story Little Red Riding Hood and then wrote a sentence to go with each one.
After lunch students did some partner reading. I also informed the students that everyday I will ask for a few volunteers to read in front of the class. Today we listened to a few groups of students read and a few individual students read a well-practiced book in French. I took some short movie clips on my camera. I will try to put together a little movie montage for you to see. Students then had some cloud time. Finally it was time for some well-needed physical activity. The students headed to gym to end the day.
Stay tuned for this week’s class newsletter.
