Scavenger Hunt! (and some other happenings)

To practice finding and identifying nouns, we decided to go on a little “noun scavenger hunt” around the school! As we walked around with our clipboards, the children were responsible for finding various people, places and things around the building. It was so fun to see some people we recognized from last year (K teachers, Mrs. Kirson at the front desk, Mr. Fowler, etc.) and places we enjoy visiting, like the library. Our class was so respectful to other classes that were working and “hunted” very quietly! 🙂

When we got back to the room, we spent some time mixing with our peers to share some of the nouns we found.

In writing this week we started to learn about two important things: labels and narratives. Our lesson started earlier this week with each child illustrating a picture of what they like to do when they play outside. They had to label at least three nouns in their picture — people, places, or things. The following day we talked about what a narrative is: a story of what happened to you. We used our illustrations and labels to write a short narrative about a time we played outside. It was easier to form our sentences because the labels we had already written gave us plenty of details! Here are a few great examples — click on the pictures to see the writing up close!
