Today, we had a special visit from some members of the Hamilton Tiger Cats to teach us about healthy eating and exercise. We learned how to identify foods in three different categories: “go” foods, “slow” foods and “woah” foods.
Megan, even got to help lead a school cheer!
And Kaleb, James’ brother got involved in the action too!
This week, we have been reading a great book called “Duck! Rabbit!”. The book is written from two different points of view and allows readers to hear two different perspectives on the same topic. In the book, the two voices see an animal and we get to hear their debate about what kind of animal it is.
As a class, we discussed how sometimes our point of view can change and the reasons why it might change. Then, everyday while reading this book, the students had a chance to use a fun visual aid to show how their point of view changed as we read.
This year, we counted school days until we reached the 100th day of school! Then, we began to count down to the last day of Grade One. Everyday we remove one link from our chain and then count to see how many days are left; today’s count: 40 days left! We found that 40 is the same as 4 groups of 10.
Grade Two is right around the corner!
