We had a busy day! This morning we had a bus evacuation drill. The children listened well and should be able to tell you two things they learned during the drill. Ask me to tell you what I learned on our bus evacuation drill.
We talked about nouns today. We know nouns are words that name a person, animal, place or thing. We played a riddle game where I gave clues about something in the classroom that was a noun. We also watched a favorite of mine from the days where Saturday morning cartoons were a big deal. Here's the School House Rock video about nouns. Enjoy!
In reading, we are working to retell key events. We talked about the word event and that it is something that happens. When we add the word "key" to event, it becomes an important event in the story. We read a short story about a boy choosing a pet and identified a key event. Later, we wrote about an event that could happen after the boy came home with his new puppy.
Have a nice evening!
