Friday was Scarecrow Day! I loved all the costumes! Thank you so much for participating! We had some amazing scarecrows! I took pictures of the whole class and individual pictures of everyone! Good memories!
We tried to figure out how many scarecrows we had in the classroom. I like scarecrows and I have quite a collection! We actually didn’t finish counting them all as we got distracted when we realized that we had even more scarecrows because we were all dressed up as scarecrows. I hope to do the search for my scarecrows next week instead!
We read one of my favourite stories by Margaret Wise Brown called The Scarecrow Boy. In the story the little boy scarecrow wants to be a real scarecrow like his Dad. One day he decides to run away and try to scare the crows in the cornfield all by himself. He makes six different faces at the crow to try to scare it away! As we read the story the children showed me their six scariest faces too! Pretty scary!
Then they made their own scarecrow faces to go with the story. Take a look!
We also make these delicious scarecrow faces. Most of the students liked all or at least part of the dish! Delicious!
We also made scarecrow books with our buddies. They helped us cut and color them and put them together. The big buddies helped the little buddies practice reading them, too!
I introduced an new app on the iPads to the children that focuses on learning the beginning sight words we are currently learning. It is called Word Bingo.
You can find it on the ABC Ya! website as well. I like the version for the iPad!
We are currently working on the PrePrimer Dolch word list. It has some additional games and a spelling practice component as well.
Take a look! You can also find this game on our classroom WIKI page at the top of the screen. Just follow the links!
