Here's what's hip-hop and happening in our classroom! Week 2
This week we spent a lot of time talking about being a good friend, a good student and just being you. A good friend shares and invites (our three vocabulary words!) . A good student follows the rules. And hey, we like ourselves! We are pretty darn awesome! We have been practicing being good students in the classroom with our Read to Self and Word Work stamina. We learned that stamina is doing something for a long time without giving up or getting tired. It is hard work, but WE DO HARD THINGS!! We are getting better and better each day. We also had our first spelling test on Friday and the kids did great!
We did several writing activities where we listened to a story and then created a project after! This week we read “Elmer,” and wrote about how we “dare to be different.” We read “Have You Filled A Bucket Today?” and wrote about how to be bucket fillers in the classroom. We read “A Frog Thing” and "Dream Big, Little Pig" and created our Hopes and Dreams for first grade.
