Fantastic Friday!

We started our day again visiting the grade 1 farmers markets, the students enjoyed lots of yummy and healthy snacks!  We also listened to a few show and share presentations today.

Inquiry into Language
We combined our Unit of Inquiry activity with our language today.  The students worked on the written portion of the melting  snowman and snowlady activity.  We first brainstormed and finished the sentence "My snowman/lady melted because...."  The students used their imagination to finish the sentence and each wrote a sentence or two.

The SK's continued our Winter unit that correlates with the Seasons unit.  The students worked on creating a melting snowman/lady using shaving cream, white glue and construction paper.

Daily 5
The students were engaged in Literacy Centers with partners today.

The SK's practiced their subtraction skills, using a variety of strategies.  The students worked individually or with a partner.
