This week I had a lot of fun with my students. All of my 5 "things" from this week are not academic...which I do feel bad about. However, I assure you we had lots of learning taking place.
April showers bring May flowers!
Got to love a little camera fun!
We were lean mean roping machines!
We had fun learning to use a lasso as we wrapped up our Tall Tales unit. We had to try and also a cow, a goat, and a tornado. If we lassoed the cow, we had to write a "noo" word. (That was my attempt at humor.) If we lassoed the old goat, we had to write an old word. Lastly, if we lassoed the tricky tornado, we had to write a trick word.
I scream you scream, we ALL scream for ice cream!
I treated all my students to ice cream since I think they are GOLDEN event though the judges didn't select our class for the Golden Apple.
Sing, sing a song...
I was so proud of all the first graders on Tuesday when they sang for 1st Congressional Church.
Who's going to second grade?
We are going to start a persuasive writing next week!
Students will plan and write a persuasive essay/speech about why they should go to second grade. After they have written their essay, they will take it home for fine tuning and to practice giving their speech. On a given day, TBA, each child will give their argument to the judge, that's me! I will decide if I believe their argument. ;)
This should be a lot of fun! I am going to wear my black graduation robe so I can look the part of a judge.
Today was the photo shoot. These pictures will be attached to each child's completed essay and hung in the hallway.
