This Hat

We read the book This Hat on Friday. Then we made new illustrations using our faces for the book. The boys and girls took the books home to share with their families on Friday.

Hat Day

To go along with our story from our reading series for the week Friday was Hat Day. Everyone looked cute in their hats and we had fun doing lots of hat activities.

This week our story was about a hat. We did lots of hat activities. On Friday we made an All About Me Hat Glyph. Glyphs are pictures that tell a story so each person's project tells a story about them. Then we all wrote about what our hat glyph tells about us. The boys and girls did an amazing job!

This week have had fun using our Document Camera with letter tiles and the fridge magnets on our SMART Board. We have been racing to build words. We use the dual screen feature on our SMART Board. One person gets to build the word on the SMART Board with fridge magnets and the other builds the word with letter tiles under the document camera. It's been so much fun!!

Guest Reader

Brenna's Aunt Sarah recently visited our class as a guest reader. She is now in South Korea for a year serving with the Air Force. She used a globe to show us where she would be living and read us a great story. Our class hopes to be pen pals with her while she is in South Korea. Mrs. Corn was especially glad to have Sarah visit also as she was one of her students when she was in first grade. Thanks for being our guest reader, Sarah!

Valentine Party

This afternoon we had a great time exchanging valentines at our party. We enjoyed way too many yummy snacks and played a fun game. Thanks to our wonderful families who sent treats for our party. We really appreciated all of them!!! Take a peak at our fun.

Valentine Centers

We had lots of fun this morning doing centers based around Valentine's Day. We used Pixie 2 on the computers to write about three things we love and one thing we don't love. Then we added a sticker from Pixie for each thing we wrote about. We drew valentine pictures with crayons and did painted red watercolor over them to make a crayon resist. Graphing valentine heart candy was really fun especially when we got to eat the candy when we finished. Using red stamp pads and our thumbs we made "thumbody" loves you hearts. Making valentine cards for special people was fun. In math we have been talking about line segments and practicing using rulers so we made hearts with line segments on them. Then we colored each area surrounded by the line segments a different color. The boys and girls worked very well and enjoyed all the activities.
