Whoa! What a day!
Today the students began their daily agenda. They will have a little sheet of paper which they will glue in the blank space, fill out the Word of the Day, then write a sentence using that word. Some of the Grade Ones or students with Diverse Needs will write the word 5 times instead of making a sentence. The agenda will go home every day and will need to be signed and brought back each morning. I created designed different paper to fit each students writing ability - some have larger spaces with one entry per page, others have smaller lines with more room for more entries (mainly grade twos). I also bought ziploc bags and put them in the back nicely so they don't stick out.
We started a new PWIM picture that I borrowed from Mrs. Stevely (thanks!). Our PWIM words are :
pumpkin, hay, eyes, girl, boots, green, jacket, boy, fall, scarecrow, orange
We will be coming up with more on our next PWIM day. I will be starting Diagnostic Numeracy Assessments with the Grade 2s tomorrow, so I will be pulling them out individually over the next two weeks. If you would like more information on what this assessment is, please email me!
Swimming starts tomorrow. Still looknig for parent/guardian volunteers to come with us - email me if you are interested!
Lots to do - looks like I'll be here all night!
