Pom-Poms

We were very happy when we walked into class this morning and saw the laptop trolleys, because that meant we were using computers for most of the day! We began with doing Daily Writing on our Writing Blog. We could write about anything we wanted. After that, we revised how to leave comments and then left a comment on one of our friend's posts. It was our first time writing our own comments and we did fabulously!

After recess, we played Tutpup. We're getting really good at it, with many of us going up to higher levels. It's a great way for us to practise our mental maths facts.



Last week for news, Meg brought in a pom-pom she had made at home. We thought it was so cool, we wanted to make some of our own! Today, we watched a video about how to make them. We also asked Meg questions about how she made hers. Then, we set to work! We had all brought in wool from home and it was great to see all the different textures and colours. There were lots of tangled strings, but we got the hang of it very quickly and everybody had fun! Most of us aren't quite finished yet, so we'll finish them on Monday and then post pictures here. Here's the video we watched and the pom-pom Meg made today.


Love from The Smarties and Mrs N

  1. HI Kiara,
    We had Old McDonald's farm come to our school today.

    My favourite animal was the black and white goat. I combed it's hair with a brush. (Caleb)

    My favourite was a chicken which had a mohawk, it was like a rooster. (Ben)

    Have a good weekend.

  2. Hello Kiara,
    I see you have made some Pom Poms in class. I hope you made 2 small Pom Poms that you can sew on your slippers. They would look great.
    Love

  4. Wow Alex! I really enjoyed your class blog. When Victor gets home from school, I'll show it to him and ask him to show it to his teacher. They usually have computer time in their class on Friday (tomorrow) so maybe you'll hear from a grade 1 class in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
