In reading we worked with verbs. We talked about verbs as action words. We acted out some action words. We played a game to practice identifying nouns and verbs. If the word was a noun, the children sat down. If it was a verb, they acted it out. They had such a fun time! Ask me to name three nouns, and three verbs.
We read an information text about rules. We looked at the text features in the book. This is new for us and will take time to learn because these words are unfamiliar and not heard often, so this will be something that we will be noticing throughout the year. Today we really focused on the table of contents, bold print and headings. We reviewed captions that we found under pictures.
During our Book a Day, we read a story called Officer Buckle and Gloria, by Peggy Rathman. This is a funny book about a police officer who does safety talks at schools each year, but the students do not listen and even fall asleep. Ask me to tell you what happens when Office Buckle gets a police dog.
Have a nice evening!
