Melting Snowman

As we continue to work on spelling more words correctly, we are playing a game that will help us with that. It is called Melting Snowman. It is basically just the game Hangman but I didn't want to have to explain "hanging" to first graders so I changed the hanging man to a melting snowman (photo below). Play is just the same, you guess letters to complete the phrase and if you guess incorrectly, a part of the snowman "melts" (is erased). You have to guess the word or phrase before the snowman melts. This would be a great game to play at home with your child. It really makes them think about letters, words and how words work. You can play this on paper but it would work better with a small whiteboard or chalkboard since you are erasing parts of the snowman.

Our MinM next week is Music/Performing Arts.

Today's volunteer is Ms. Carin. Ms. Carin comes in on Thursdays and reads with us and helps us out during stations. I can tell that Ms. Carin is a science teacher because of some of the fun lessons she teaches the crew at the build and create station. Thanks, Ms. Carin.
