We always start our day with a morning greeting.
One at a time, the children shake hands and greet each other by name. Then they say something related to a given topic.
As we know, squeezing in enough time for everything is nearly impossible, so we squeeze in some learning any place we can! Time for social studies and science are especially strained, but we squeeze them in!
We all love starting our day with a morning greeting, and I usually try to squeeze in a learning concept while we greet each other.
After a lesson on Columbus the day before, they were asked to state something they remember from the lesson.
After working on the 4 kinds of sentences, I had them tell statements about themselves one day, then ask each other questions on another day. Their questions were priceless! (Some of their answers were even more priceless!)
For a writing project this week, they had to tell why their school was great. (We'll be writing opinion stories!)
I read an information book about Bats, so the next day they had to tell a fact they remembered about Bats. It was amazing what they remembered!
It's never tough to think of a topic,
we just think about what we've been learning!
Of course, sometimes we just have a fun question.
Today we shared our favorite kind of ice cream!
