Freezing Thursday!

We started our day with a spelling test and the students had an opportunity to practice their poems for the in class oral competition on Monday, February 5th.  The students did a great job! We went over the expectations for a successful presentation and had the students practice.

Inquiry into Language
We practiced the formation and sound of the blend sound ng.  The students brainstormed short words that had the "ng" sound and worked on their printing skills with an activity sheet.  The students also worked with partners and had to determine which words were real or nonsense words.  Here is the link to the song: ng song

The SK's continued working on their melting snowman/lady activity.

Daily 5
The students were engaged in Literacy Centers with partners today and enjoyed reading with their Reading Buddies.
