Ten Plus

Image
Today in math, we played a game called 10's plus.  This is a game where scholars combine two single-digit numbers and record the sum in terms of how it relates to 10.  So, for instance, a 8 + 7 is =  to  10+5.   Scholars took turns picking 2 cards and then recording the sum on the answer sheet.





Fun day planned for Friday

Mrs. Lister’s class can wear their pajamas and bring a small stuffed animal to school tomorrow Friday, April 29, 2016. Please remember that it is a P.E. day so make sure scholars have sneakers.

Happiness

Image
Today with Mrs. Touchette, we talked about happy memories.  The scholars were asked to recreate, in their minds, a time when they had a happy feeling.  Scholars took a few quiet moments and thought about where they were , who they were with, what they were doing and the sounds and sights they heard.  They drew pictures and then shared with me their happy memories.  I am happy to share them with you.  
The next part of the conversation will be to think about our happy memory when we are feeling sad.  




Reading choices

Image
Monday through Thursday the scholars in Mrs. Lister's room take turns at reading stations.  The four stations are:  read to self, listen to reading, word work and work with teacher.  Each morning the scholars spend around 10 minutes on each of these "schedule appointments".  Their stamina for these activities has increased and it has been a comfortable routine in our classroom.    Keep sending in the  homework slips for reading at home.  Students are working toward an in-class celebration once they have  read for 200 hours.  They are half way to this goal, already!

Friendship Lesson

Today, Mrs. Lister's class read Charlie the Caterpillar.  Scholars wrote about how Charlie showed friendship to Katie. The scholars also wrote about how they demonstrate friendship every day.  They finished their project with a watercolor  painting.

Extra choice and lunch in classroom

Scholars in Mrs Lister's room celebrated expected behavior by having lunch in the classroom and an extra choice.  Super hard work scholars!  Great job being mindful of your behavior.
