Here's some of what we've been doing this week. I had lots of fun things planned but my kiddos are big talkers so transitions are taking forever. I am having a really hard time fitting everything in.
We are finishing our unit on plants. We worked a few days on a flipbook of plant parts. First we read "From Seed to Plant" by Gail Gibbons.
We drew a flower and wrote the function of each part underneath the flaps.
We also have been working on nouns. Today, we reviewed nouns with a group activity. Each group had 10 minutes to write down as many nouns as they could. They came up with a great deal of nouns. The aha moment of the day came during this activity. As I was walking around, I heard one of my struggling students say, "Guys, we can use the things we see around us." It was a great moment for him.
