Today we met our first grade buddies! We built a few challenges using our Intooba kits to break the ice and get to know each other. We were great role models, and we look forward to building relationships with these awesome first graders for the rest of the year.
Today we explored how sounds travels! We created old school telephones and transferred messages across the room. Now we're trying to improve our designs for clarity and consistency.
MORE POETRY FUN
Today we played around with word choice in poetry and how it changes tone. We used the poem April Rain Song by Langston Hughes. Can you change some of the words to make it dark and dreary or lonely and sad? Then we practiced contrasting poems about other subjects.
Today we explored poetry. We reviewed what we know, read poems by famous poets, and then had a chance to write some of our own. We love the freedom poetry give us.
Sometimes all your friend leave for the beach...
and board games with friends on a snowy, Friday, spring, CB afternoon is the perfect cure!
CAN YOU DRAW IT?
Today in math, we partnered up and tested our geometry vocabulary, listening, and drawing skills. Given an image, could you accurately describe it to a partner in a way that they could draw it? No peeking...it's more challenging than it seems.
This week we're "finding" poems in already printed pages of text.
It's amazing what beautiful poems and themes are hiding in books if you look!
THE END OF TESTING!
