Listening to Reading

IMG_5790 IMG_5789 IMG_5793 IMG_5791One thing we really enjoy is using our iPods for Listening to Reading. We have four folders of great stories on our iPod to listen to every day.

We have learned to wind up and store our ear buds properly to prevent tangles. We have learned how to listen safely, with the volume down. And we have learned how to place our hands on our throats when we’re singing along with our stories to check for vibrations. If our throat is vibrating, we might be disturbing our friends! It’s hard to tell when we’re wearing our ear buds!

Here are some of the 40 stories that we have on our iPods.

Lined up and ready to go!

 

We have finished our first week of school! First graders are practicing all kinds of things in school. Here we are practicing how to line up to go somewhere. We have to face forward, stand quietly, and be still. This helps us stay peaceful and respectful in the hall.

There is something new on the blog today! I have added a page for our Google Calendar. Look at the top of the blog and you will see it. When you click on that page, you will find special dates for our school such as PSA meetings, school pictures, and our special activities scheduled for the week.

We have worked hard this week on learning the expectations for Read to Self, Work on Writing, and Listen to Reading. We even got three Daily 5 practice rounds in on Friday.
