This morning we used our analysis skills once again to look at photographs of beautiful skies. Then we took our sky windows outside and used paperclips to mark what the sky looked like, what the weather was like, and what kind of clouds we saw. Today we brought home the sky windows. Ask me to show you how I can use the sky window and talk about the weather! Check out the pictures below of our weather watchers!
Today we used "Stretchy Snakes" to stretch out unknown words we wanted to use to label a picture. The snakes are simply a tool to encourage children to say the word slowly to hear the sounds in the word. The children know the Stretchy Snakes are a tool, not a toy.
This afternoon we learned more about symbols. We focused on American symbols. Ask me to tell you about the American symbols we learned about today!
And now, one of our favorite parts of the day, a video of a Brain Break. Please enjoy The Bear Necessities. It's difficult to get a good video of this since the kids are following the motions on the Promethean Board, but this should leave a smile on your face. Enjoy!
