The first graders gathered together to honor classmates who have earned point tags for Accelerated Reader and sight word recognition. These students earned a tag for knowing all 220 of the Dolch words! Six of these students are in our classroom!Congratulations!
Ms. McLennan presented an interactive lesson for subtraction using a number line. The lesson began with a story about hopping frogs. She created lilly pads and a frog for students to hold while hopping backward to subtract. Students used the number line on their desk plates to apply this skill to completing subtraction problems.

Students painted Chinette plates and decorated them with feathers, streamers and sequins. They colored a thunderbird or teepee (clip art images enlarged) and glued it onto the center of the shield. Our shields will decorate the classroom and be used as part of the costumes for our feast play.
