A notice was sent home today explaining a monthly sharing program our class will begin on Monday. September's topic is sharing pictures of family member and pets. Please look to the calendar for your child's sharing day.
Today we had our 2nd early dismissal Friday of Grade 1. This morning we worked carefully to write and draw in our journals sharing what we liked or learned this week. We began our writing by closely copying a sentence starter and then wrote our own idea by using our sounds. In math we learned a new math dice game called Race to 100. We cooperated with a partner by taking turns adding 2 dice and counting numbers to 100. At the end of the morning we had our first "Ketchup and Pickles" time. "Ketchup" time is when we finish (catch up on) work from the week. Today we finished our journal, poem - I am Me... and writing numbers from 1 -100 in a chart. "Pickle" time is when we "pick" an activity such as building, creating with art materials, games or computers. Today many students logged onto BookFliks or Starfall. Next week we will learn how to log into Mathletics and receive our numbers to use at home.
Have a super weekend!
