Our class guess the covered words in the poem Black Cat on the Fence. Then we built the lines of the poem on our SMARTBoard. Next the boys and girls found words on a mixed up version of the poem. After that they put the words together in order to build their own copy of the poem. After we finished the poem everyone had fun illustrating their poem.

Then we made cat puppets and practiced reading the poem in groups.

Groundhog Glyph Predictions

Our class predicted if the groundhog would or would not see his shadow. We made glyphs to illustrate our predictions and tell about ourselves as well. Boys have black ears and girls have pink. If we have seen a groundhog our groundhog is sitting but if we have never seen one ours is standing. If the student's birthday is in winter their arms are up if it isn't in winter the arms are down. A cloud means the groundhog will not see his shadow and a sun means he will. Next week we will write about our projects and predictions.

Our 100th Day of School

Our class had fun with our Elf on the Shelf in December. It was exciting each morning upon arrival to try to be the first person to locate her. Everyone wrote about what we should name her and then we voted on the name Snowflake. We found her in lots of fun places in our classroom throughout the month. The boys and girls enjoyed keeping a journal of Snowflake's escapades in our classroom by writing about where we found her each morning.
