The first week of classes is behind us! The students are learning the routines and jumping into the biomes unit right away.
We began with a creativity exercise.
Grades 1-2 worked on originality and elaboration completing a Savannah tree transformation.
Grades 3-5 worked on fluency and flexibility of ideas naming birds then categorizing them.
I shared information about myself, the classroom routines, our unit, and the expectations for the year.
We painted nature flags depicting an insect, plant, animal, or a nature scene on Muslim cotton squares. These will be displayed in our hallway soon.
We discussed the homework activities.
Grades 1-2 are to create a mask of an insect, plant, or animal which represents their personality or characteristics.
Grades 3-5 are to create a surfboard with items that tell about them.
I introduced the centers that students will complete in the next 2-3 weeks related to our unit.
We reviewed the day's activities.
**Please make sure that students bring their supplies to class. They should have a binder, dividers, a flashdrive, and a spiral.**
