We read a big book filled with photographs of a farm and told us about the various animals on a farm. We identified the items in the photographs such as the animals, people, plants and buildings. The students then went off and drew something they would see at a farm and were encouraged to label it during our word study time.
|T.S drew a barn-he labeled with a B|
|A.R drew a cat and labeled it with the word|
|J.M drew a rooster and labeled with an r|
|G.S drew a chicken|
|D.K drew a variety of items - he drew a cow, a pig, a monkey on a tree and a farm (he labeled it with an F)|
|O.B drew a horse and labeled with HRS|
|K.M drew a farm house and labeled with FMHS|
We also had our first writing share. The students brought their work to the rug and talked about what they did.
