After our first week of school we are all ready to dive in working on blending letters again. We started the day off playing with the word factory on Starfall.com on the SMARTboard. We then read, "The Way I Act" again as a class to talk about all the words that we want to use to describe ourselves. As we talked about the words that describe ourselves we started talking about things we love, things we like to do, and what we like to think and talk about. This led right into our body maps. We worked cooperatively to trace each other's outlines on huge sheets of paper. Then we worked diligently to add symbols that represented who we are. We're going to keep working on our body maps in school for another day or two to keep adding things that represent us.
