The snow finally caught up to us on the west coast of Canada. This is a picture from our kitchen window on Sunday afternoon. The snow continued to fall through the night and we had a snow day on Monday.
I also created a set of task cards which we played with today. I am amazed at how much they have learned about idioms.
The kids had fun going around and measuring things in the classroom using measuring tapes, rulers, links, cubes, pencils, erasers, and hands.
We also did a math lesson as an experiment. We wrote it up using the scientific method and then we proceeded to test it out. I will share what we did next week after we try it out again with the parents at the conferences.
I have modified them a bit for my class, but they work like a charm. I have not needed to use a treasure box, behavior charts, or any other types of motivators this year. It is exciting to see the children buying into following the rules and taking it so seriously. It is time to say goodbye to the winter theme and create a new and brighter set for the spring. This set will be available for free for the weekend if you would like to grab a set for next winter.
