This Tuesday Grade One had lots of fun learning about The Five Senses with Science East. Science East will be visiting our classroom every other Tuesday for lots of hands on activities!
Wondering how to make spelling practice fun? Students loved studying their No Excuse Spelling Words with a simple game of Tic Tac Toe. See next weeks homework for details.
Everyone had a blast on our first day of skating!
If you are looking for a fun and easy way for your children to learn difficult sight words, "Sight Word Bump" is great!
How to play:
On a piece of paper write 6 different sight words several times. Write those words on a blank cube.
Player one rolls the die and must read the word. Then they place a counter on the same word on the game board.
Player two repeats.
If a player rolls a word that their opponent has already rolled, they can BUMP their counter off.
If a player rolls the same word twice, they can place a second counter on that word in order to lock it (and can no longer be BUMPED).
The player with the most counters locked at the end of the game WINS!
*Remember, the whole point of the game is to make sure that your child is reading the word rolled before covering it with their counter!
Here is a song to help students with our next math outcome, skip counting by 2s. Remember, Grade One only has to be able to skip count to 20, however some students are already to count even further!
Grade One enjoyed the entire morning at River View Orchards. Boys and Girls spent the day in the pumpkin patch, picking apples in the orchard, running around the corn maze and playing on the playground. What an awesome way to spend a Monday morning! Remember, parents are ALWAYS welcome!
Over the past week students have learn to compare numbers using the greater than, less than and equal signs. Here is a catchy little tune that students loved to listen to to help remind them of how to use each sign correctly. Enjoy!
I asked the boys and girls in Grade One if they had a special message they would like to add to their Turkey Photoshoot, so here it is... "We want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving with their family and friends!"
