Monday’s News

on September 26, 2011

Wow!  We had a great day in B3!  Here are some of the highlights:

  • We learned a new game in morning meeting called Zoom!  We had to work together to pass the word Zoom around the circle.  Our fastest time was under 13 seconds!  Wow!
  • We learned how good readers expand thier vocabulary by tuning into interesting words.  We read the book Max’s Words.  Max collects interesting words and uses them to make wonderful stories. We will get our own word collectors tomorrow to collect words we find interesting as we read.  Today we found the words slithered and darted in our read aloud book.  So interesting!
  • We took a practice spelling test on our new short i spelling words.
  • We learned a new math game in math called “Melon Monster.”  We learned about the partners of 8.  8 even has a special partner that is called an equal partner: 4 +4!
  • Last week we learned how to keep safe on a bus.  Today we learned how to keep safe outside of school especially around strangers.  This week is drill week at Rice Lake so we will be learning about how to keep safe in a fire, severe weather, and lock down drills.

Here is a picture of us at Morning Meeting.  We are carefully listening to our King and Queen share! 🙂
