Wow! This class really knows a lot of weather words! This morning we woke up our brains by playing Stand and Deliver. We stood in a rectangle and went around one student at a time, each student naming one weather word. They had to listen to others so as not to repeat a word that had already been said. All the words had to be weather words. When a student couldn't think of another word, they had to sit down, but they could get up if they thought of another one. The students came up with 37 words! We will use the words for a concept map that we will build as we study weather.
Then we listened to the story Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. We made a w with our fingers when we heard a weather word. We ended our day outside using our senses to record what we noticed about the weather. Unfortunately, a big lawnmower made it very hard to listen and to smell anything except fresh grass, but we will go outside again soon as part of our weather unit.
Literacy Station time is going well with children learning the expectations for the noise level as well as the work they are to do.
September seems to be moving too fast for me! I love the cooler weather, but I can't believe that today was the seventeenth day of school!
Enjoy your evening!
