We read the book “Don’t Need Friends” as we continue with our friends and feelings theme. We learned about the academic vocabulary problem and solution. A couple of students came up and helped match pictures to the problem and solution and described each. Afterwards students colored their own problem and solution.
During free choice centers students were paired up with someone in the class and they learned their new friends favorite colored, and did hand print paintings.
To celebrate our first snow in Shaktoolik we read the book called Snowballs and learned about different types of snow people you can make. We then got together as a class an and discussed what are the steps to making a snowman. Kindergarten and 1st grade wrote their own directions as 1st grade continues to learn about Expository Writing. Student’s also got to paint their snowman after they were done writing their directions.
