We have been learning all about maps! On Friday we made edible maps. We used green frosting for the land, blue frosting for water, dots for homes, and a smartie for the school! It was a fun way to apply the map skills we learned!
We have completed DRA and PALS testing. I will be sending home a 2nd nine week summary home in the next two weeks with all of your studen't updated information. I was very, very pleased with the results!
We celebrated the letter E by changing classrooms and completing different E activities! It was fun for the kids to travel to different classrooms and experience different teachers while learning about the letter E!
In Mrs. Edwards' class the students practiced measuring by using a balance. The kids estimated how many cubes each elephant weighed. Then, they got to check! They also participated in an egg relay and enjoyed a snack of Eggos!
In my classroom, we cooked! We made yummy Elephant Ears! We also played a fun game to review sight words!
In Mrs. Urban's classroom the kids heard a story about one of my favorite Dr. Seuss Characters: Horton the Elephant. The kids also practiced fine motor skills by coloring, cutting, and assembling an adorable elephant headband!
Mrs. Wilson played a math game in her classroom. The student rolled a die and put that many peanuts on their elephant game board. The person who filled their board up first won!
