We are currently working on identifying number patterns using a hundreds chart. These two activities online may help students review at home.
Students! In 2016, we will be focusing on word families with spelling dictations each week.
Please try out these interactive games:
This online activity is designed to help readers recognize word patterns and learn about onset and rime. Students are first asked to select a vowel, and are then presented with a series of words to sort into short-vowel word families. Students can then print their completed word family chart and use it to practice reading the words fluently.
A HUGE thank you to all family members who were able to make it to our room on Friday for the Literacy Day events. Students really seemed to enjoy the centres while spending time with their loved ones.
If you want to continue the fun at home, please click on the following links:
NOUN GAMES “a noun is a person place or thing like a guy or a school or a playground swing”:
PRONOUN GAMES“a pronoun is a sub for nouns like I and we, him, her, he, she, they, you and me”:
Hello students! Please take a few minutes at home to try out some links to verb and adverb games. Thanks! You can always send me a post about which game is your favourite.
We are working one writing 5 sentence paragraphs in class.
An organized 5 sentence paragraph looks like this:
A. One Topic Sentence
B. Three Supporting Ideas
C. One Closing Sentence or Clincher
There are some great (2 min.) videos to help students understand the Topic Sentence and Closing Sentence on this link:
Here are a few activities:
We had a huge turnout for the Open House and it was a joy to see the children teaching their family members about the arcade games, as well as watching them laugh and play with them.
Our classroom arcade had 12 different games and all participants received a certificate for playing! It was a wonderful night to celebrate the creativity and imagination of the students in our classroom.
Thank you students! What a great start to the new school year!
There are sound clips of the students explaining their games so be sure to click on the purple link beside their images!
