Hello from room 207. In our room, we have 6 amazing students and two amazing Para Pro's (Shari and Amy).
This year we are attending our lessons through Google Classroom. We have a virtual bitmoji classroom that we do our daily lessons though and have fun rooms to explore.
We do fun learning activities throughout our school day. Each morning is morning group. This is where we talk about the day of the week, listen to the local weather report, identify our own name as well as our classmates, and look over our schedule for the day. It is also where we work on counting out the date and counting out how many students came to our class that day. Each day we work on a modified version of the Unique Curriculum. This curriculum allows our class to experience activities that involve Reading, Writing, Math and Science. During the week we read a story that relates to the curriculum and have the students answer questions about what we just read.
Throughout the month, the students will work on math skills by doing math worksheets (interactive on google slides or paper copy), cooking activities with Ms. Shari (using measuring cups, talking about more/less and counting out ingredients), or taking surveys (counting out the votes and then putting the results on a graph). Science activities are explored by doing science experiments and “analyzing” the data collected from the experiment. Writing activities are also used throughout the month. With writing activities, students get to explore choice making to complete sentence templates and or paragraphs. They also get the opportunity to experience journal writing, using words/pictures from a template, to express their ideas. We also do a variety of art activities. The art activities presented by Ms. Amy may relate to the curriculum unit we are working on or a fun seasonal project. With art activities, we are able to explore things such as color and shape identification as well as choice making and following directions.
After reading this, we hope you have a better idea of just some of the fun activities that happen in our classroom. We hope you take the time to go into our virtual classrooms (ie: ELA room, game room, science lab, toy room, reading room, etc.) and explore some of the fun activites we do thoughout our day.
