This was the week of letter G and we did lots of activities. I read the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Most of the children knew it from pre-k and they helped me as I read. They created the setting on a piece of manila paper using their markers. Then they colored and cut the characters out and placed them in the appropriate place for where they belonged in the story. Some put all the goats before the bridge and some put the goats after the bridge and the troll was upside down in the water. It was fun to see if they could use the right order of things.
One of my brilliant children wrote a sentence using the sight words when we did the literacy tubs! I was so excited!!!!
This is the picture of spill the beans. It was a great game and they are learning to share and take turns!
Mrs. Shelton's class recorded their reindeer research in the hall. They traced their hands on a piece of fun foam and the antlers are pipe cleaners. They added lots of details like hooves and a red nose. Some of the reindeer are in the blue water because reindeer are excellent swimmers!
Her class also made lights with the children's name on them. It was interesting to see if the kids could put their letters together in the correct order from left to right!
Mr. Grinch is getting full of good random acts of kindness. We hope to fill him up the 3 days we come to school next week!
Mrs. Shelton and Mrs. Jordan made stockings with wants and needs on them.
