What an exciting week in grade 1 C!
Mr. Brian came to talk to us about how we say letter sounds. He brought his friend Mr. Bob to help us pronounce certain letter sounds. We are currently practicing the digraph “th”. We used mirrors to look at how we place the tip of our tongues to move under our top teeth (slightly) as we say the Magic Words: This, That, These, Those.
We are now searching for “th” words in story books and saying/reading them with partners. Please do talk about how to say this tricky sound when you read at home.
Maker Space, Coding and Programming with Mr. Neal
We went to the our very cool Maker Space and experimented with Lego WeDo. We are very inquisitive coders and programmers. Mr. Neal taught us how to make lego animals. Then, we coded and programmed colors and sounds with an ipad and our Lego robots. We also worked with our 1C Responsibility Partners to share our thinking and ideas and practiced taking turns.
Our Field Trip to Curious Kids
In our Sharing the Planet unit, we are learning about living things and how our understanding helps us share environmental resources. Did you know specific animals live in unique habitats? Did you know that our choices impact the environment animals live in?
We had a fabulous adventure to Curious kids. We observed and investigated some exotic animals. We played some exciting games with the animals and Mr. Kris. We had a great discussion about how living things such as endangered and rescued animals share our environment and resources. It’s our job to protect animals, keep the Earth clean and Share the Planet. Next week, we will look at pictures from our field trip and UOI books to discuss and label the external features of animals.
