Thanks so much for helping me celebrate my birthday what a fun day it was. A perfect day to Cross Country ski with the kiddos! Blue skies. We are all getting much better at sliding across the ice and a lot of us took the challenge and zoomed down the big hill! Thanks to Ami and Linnea, for the yummy cupcakes that we had to celebrate my birthday!
Thanks for sending in your children's collections. this week we started our opinion writing unit and used our collections to start it off. The kids have to be "judges" and decide which item in their collection is the very best and give at least three reason why they thought it was the best. We will continue this unit for the next several week and be writing opinions and reviews on Books, movies and toys.
What do Snowmen do at night? Lots of fun things. We read the book and then wrote our own ideas about what Snowmen may do at night. Some of our snowmen take some great adventures!
I hope everyone had a happy New Year! It has been a great start to 2015 and I am excited to be starting some great new projects. One of which is teaching the kids how to use Google Docs. and share their projects with friends, teachers and parents. Today we just practiced and had some fun doing some high interest searches and typing practice. Then sharing it with one friend in our class so that they could see our work and make comments on it. What a fun activity and the kids loved it!
