We have not blogged in over a month and our goal is to now blog daily. These are some of the highlights of February in Room 191 (we will post pictures later):
1. We worked on Position and Motion in Science and completed a design project. Our design project was creating a vehicle that had 4 wheels, 2 axles and a body. The design needed to be sturdy and able to move down a ramp. There were some awesome creations!
2. We went to East Gate Lodge to visit our seniors buddies. It was reading month at BEYS, so we brought our reading boxes and read to our buddies. We also made clay pinch pots and once they are fired and glazed we will bring them back to our buddies. For snacktime, we made our senior buddies fruit kabobs. We ended our afternoon by singing "One Love" by Bob Marley and saying our good byes until our next visit!
3. We had an awesome Valentine's party and 100's Day. Some of the activities included bringing a 100 collection from home and estimating/measuring the length, area and perimeter that our collection covered. We also played some dice games with the hundred charts and we made portraits of what we think we will look like when we're 100 years old.
4.We invited an elder to our classroom and did an aboriginal feather craft.
IN FEBRUARY, NO ONE RECEIVED AN AMBER SLIP!! WAY TO GO!!
