In first grade this week we worked on finding current temperatures of cities around the U.S. The children have been studying temperature in math, so I wanted to put their new knowledge into action. In computer class, they were directed to find the temperatures of 4 specific cities around the country using www.weather.com and then record the data on a drawing of the U.S. If they completed the four cities they were encouraged to then research the temperatures in cities of their choosing.
The second graders worked on finishing up their annotated diagrams this week. Many students have decided to include their diagrams in their published pieces for wirter's workshop. Here are a few more examples to enjoy!
In one of the second grade classes this week, we tried a fun drawing/painting activity once the children finished up their annotating. I asked them to draw a picture of their choice using Doozla, but my expectation was that their pictures only contain lines, line segments, points, and quadrangles--all terms they have been discussing in math. Here are a few of the finished products:
Mrs. Foster's class made short videos this week in computer explaining what they have learned about the four different types of sentences. The children were divided into groups by the teacher and then encouraged to make a video using whatever avenue they wanted. We ended up with a scene at school, at a clothing store, and at a sandwich shop. Take a look!
