1st Graders Create Desktop Pumpkin Friends to Read to and Write About
NCS 1st Graders are thinking outside the box OR outside the pumpkin patch as it may be...
1st grade continues to work on our Social Emotional Learning work the last few weeks in our Falling Into Friendship theme. Being that the students can't always read with or to a classroom partner due to safety measures, their teacher, Mr. Terry, had the students create their own desk top pumpkin friend to be able to work with to encourage, inspire, and engage their learning. The students have been sending videos to their Seesaw accounts sharing with their families their reading aloud to their pumpkin friend.
Pumpkin Buddies
They have also been working on their Gratitude Journals and their pumpkin friends are right there, googly-eyes and all, to be silent cheerleaders of their work.
1st graders are beginning to add creative writing to the resume of their pumpkin friend as well, as their pumpkin friend is the co-subject of some fun and zany stories to come as they include them as a character to their writing.
We have learned that through friendship and good friends found in our class family, we can all get through anything safely together by working together and looking out for each other.
