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!

Building Words

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!!

Shiver Me Letters

The boys and girls enjoyed the alphabet book, Shiver Me Letters. Then everyone wrote a page using their name just like the author of the book. We recorded the students telling what they had written in front of a green screen to put our first grade pirates on the beach.
