What a wonderful job the children did at the holiday program!
Oh, how persuasive first graders can be! In writing this week we have continued on with our persuasive writing unit. Last week the children wrote persuasive notes to Ms. Raynor asking for things they would like to change about school. For example, some of the things the children came up with were having longer recess, having more P.E., bringing their pets to school, having a soda shop and having longer lunch. This week we wrote a list of the things they wanted for Christmas and then they picked the item they wanted the most. Next they brainstormed all the reasons why they think they should get the item. They will be writing letters to Santa trying to persuade him. J
We have been discussing eating healthy and keeping a healthy body. We have been examining food labels, tracking how many fruits and vegetables they eat at lunch and talking about the food groups. At dinner talk with your child about which of the food groups (fruits, vegetables, protein, grains, dairy or fat) his or her food goes under!
