Today 1ai students completed their first word sorts matching words with letters. Lots of cutting, glueing, and arranging, but most of all thinking! Great job!

Today also students were introduced to two literacy centers: word sorts and punctuation. The word sorts center is all about matching pictures to the letter it represents, and punctuation is about capital letters and full-stop signs. It was not easy to do it for the first time but they did it! Great!
Reading is a big thing when it comes to learning. And one way to enjoy it is to share a book with our Mystery Reader. Our first Mystery Reader today was Scarlett's mom, Julia. The students didn't know who it was until the last moment and everybody waited in anticipation. How surprising it must be to discover who it is!
Today 1ai had their first experience with computers during our ICT class. First they learned how to log in and log out of their accounts. And then the students were introduced to the drawing tool called 'Splat' which allows them to draw all kinds of lines and shapes. They were so creative exploring all the various features of the program! They couldn't have enough!
