The lesson consisted of my teaching my students the proper procedures in planning for snow.
To have a snow day, students and teachers must follow these rules...
1. Pajamas must be worn inside-out during bedtime
2. Flush 3 ice-cubes down the toilet
3. Do the Snow Dance (which we practiced for maximum retention)
4. *this came from Mr. Russell* sleep with a spoon under your pillow
My students must have learned their lesson well, because I've already gotten the call from Hamilton County that we will be on a 2 hour delay. :)
In Academia today we worked on vocabulary. We have 6 new vocabulary words in reading, so we put them on the board and defined them as a class. Then my students created a 4-square, chose 4 of the words and put them in sentences and illustrated them. I told the kids I would choose the 4 best papers and they would get on the blog.
Here are our vocabulary words and our definitions:
News- information you need to know
Easy- something you can do; not hard
Weather- what it looks like outside
Perfect- the best
Convinced- talked into something
In science we made brochures (informational texts) to describe the different types of matter. My students did great job!
I am going to do the math lesson in a separate post. You can see it under the Mini Math Lesson link at the top of the blog site. (It might get posted tomorrow since I really want video to go with it.)

And last, but not least, we had recess inside for the fourth day in a row. It's just been too wet and cold this week. Now my students don't mind too much. They like playing with blocks, legos, matching games, reading/ coloring books, and even my math flash cards and fluency phrase cards.
Well, today one of my soldiers convinced me (notice my use of one of our vocabulary words!) to let her reorganize our classroom library to make sure all the books were in the proper tubs. I thought, "What the heck? Let her do it!" I learned my lesson.
This did not deter my fellas from doing their best in creating imaginative structures with the Legos!
Well, I can't wait to see everyone tomorrow! Remember- we are on 2 hour delay!
