We had our second round of parent-teacher conferences at the beginning of the week. They went well. I didn't have many grades to share due to all the snow days!
We began our Volcano Unit. This is always a high interest topic for the kiddos. One of the skills we're working on is questioning the text. The kids make foldable Volcanoes to write their questions and answers on. Then they add "lava" erupting to make it fun.
Every year my class writes a myth and publishes it with Student Treasures. We worked on our class draft this week. The children decided to explain how lightning and tornadoes came to be. It is so cute . Children have amazing imaginations.
We ended our week with the Valentine exchange and party. My room parent planned fun games for the kids. They enjoyed a game of Valentine Twister.
On a personal note. I finished my guest post at the Writer's Drawer. My post is titled A Writer's Heart. You can click on the post title if you're interested in reading it.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
