Mrs. Ginn's First Grade
Congratulations to Shelby, our Life Skill Leader this month for Effort!
Our Star Student this week is Seth. We are learning more about him and wrote him a book today to take home.
We welcomed our 21 student this week, Rosa. The children have been amazing with welcoming Rosa into our class.
Toolbox tool this week: Apology and Forgiveness tool.
In Spanish this week students practiced saying the days of the week (while doing the macarena) and named the months of the year.
We read The Mitten this week by two different authors, Jan Brett and Alvin Tresselt. We completed a Venn Diagram together as a class. Students picked their favorite version and worked on writing and drawing for each, the beginning, middle, and end. We worked on the important elements of a story: characters, setting, problem, solution, and retell.
Our art today was inspired by the weather...white oil pastel rain drops with blue water color background and colorful pants and boots with a bright patterned umbrella. To quote Jhonen, "the best part is that each one is different!" Come check them out in the classroom.
