We have been working hard in Grade 1 & 2. Learning how to learn is hard work, but it is fun. We have been talking a lot about honesty this month in our Classroom Championsunit. Sometimes telling the truth is hard and we don’t want to do it. We have read several different versions of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, including The Wolf Who Cried Boy.
We discussed how and why being honest is important.
To sum up the month of October it was busy!! Check out this short slideshow to see some of the things we are doing in our class.
Students will be accessing Matt Gomez’s Blog to learn about various sports. Hopefully we will they share our writing on an app of each student’s choice. Thank you to Matt for compiling a great research of videos for my students to use!
