Winter Weather


Winter Weather
Most people like warm weather,
Or so I have been told,
But me, I like the winter,
When the weather is brisk and cold.

Each year I wait for winter,
With its wind and snow and sleet.
I like to wear my warm wool clothes
And boots upon my feet.

In winter I go sledding
And skating in the park.
The wind may blow and it may snow,
But I won’t come home till dark!

 Words of the Week (this week are some familiar sight words)
 Grade 1&2
have (an exception to the "silent e" rule)
come (an exception to the "silent e" rule)

** we are also practicing w words this week!

 We are so happy that there is snow! It makes talking about seasonal change so much more relevant!

Now is here --
A fine new start
For a whole new year.

The snow comes down
In the dark of night.
When we awake
The world is white.

In January
When there's snow,
We get our sleds
And away we go.

Words of the Week
We are working on long vowel sounds now -- and the silent e!
The Grade 1's all seem to be ready for greater challenges, so we will see how we do with these harder words!

Grade 1 and 2

Here is the silent e song that we have been listening to! We LOVE it!
