The children had a wonderful morning with our substitute, Mrs. Fu. They listened to the story The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything, by Linda Williams. This is a cumulative tale that features a little old lady going into the woods to collect berries and nuts. Along the way she meets different pieces of clothing who move and make sounds, trying to frighten the old lady. Ask me to tell you what happened next. The students wrote about what frightened them, and what they have done that shows they are brave. They also recalled key details from the text such as the items the old lady met and the sounds they made. The students also practiced writing numerals in order up to 20. They did a counting activity as well that required them to develop a system for counting a mixed collection accurately.
The Halloween party was a huge success. Thank-you to Ms. Pike for organizing the party and for all the help from parents. Here are a few of the photos from the party!
