The grade ones write sentences about happy days on the river and on the shore, skipping rocks and many sentences about fishing! We play grouping games…groups of two and groups of five…groups of ten. We look at the pictures of the floods on the front pages of several newspapers. Using gloss medium, the students coat their white boards, apply the news stories and coat again with gloss. The children are happy to learn that the white gloss is clear when it dries.
