Yesterday the Grade 1 classes did some senses activities in the three classrooms. First our class went to Ms Arnold's class where we had to try to identify the sound in the cups.
Then we went to Ms Hima's room. Her room was touch. We used sand to make pictures and different kinds of materials to make collages.
After that, we went to our room, which was the sight room.

Emmanie: I went to three classes. I liked Ms Hima's class, because I like to draw a picture with glue and cover with sand. It is fun.
Frankie: I liked the paper picture one. It is fun. I try to see the picture move, but it couldn't move. I wanted it to move. And then I don't know why it didn't move. I also liked the very quiet talking. I also liked the light table one. I saw a movie.
Teddy: It was interesting. We went to two different classes. It was hard to get the fish in the bowl, because you need to stare at the stripes of the fish. In Ms Arnold's class we were hearing. She put sounds on and we have to guess what sound it was. In Ms Hima's class we made fish. It was so fun. We made fish and we had sand and glue. So we had glue and made a picture of glue and got it in sand.
Nora: I liked it because it was so fun. I think that was fun because I liked the activities. I liked Ms Leah's room, because she had a lot of activities. I liked the floor activities. The end
Lucy: We went to three rooms. One was Ms Leah's, 2 was Ms Hima's, three was Ms Arnold's. Ms Leah's was dark room. Ms Hima's room was pictures. Ms Arnold's was listening. My favorite was Ms Hima's class. It was the best ever. I had lots of fun.
Pieter: We first went to Ms Arnold's class. We learnt about sound by listening to sounds in cups. Then we went to Ms Hima's class and we made sound pictures. In Ms Leah's class we learnt about sight. We did 3 rotations.
Arwyn: I first went to Ms Arnold's class. We had a paper that had 'ABCDEFGHIJ'. Those are the letters on the plastic cups and paper on top of the plastic cup, and we had to guess what was inside the plastic cup. I went to Ms Hima's class next and made pictures with fluff balls. Then we went to Ms Leah's class and I went to a shadow place with glow in the dark pictures.
Claire: I only like Ms Leah's and Ms Hima's class is my other favorite, second. I love art too. Art is my favorite hobby to do.

Johnny: When we went to Ms Arnold's class, she said to go to the table and find out what is in the drums. And write it down on a piece of paper. And we learnt sounds. But I got most of them wrong. But I was feeling good still. Next class I went to Ms Hima's class. Then we learnt about touch. We made a picture of materials. Then we went to our last class. It was Ms Leah's. We learnt about sight. We went to three rotations and then it was over.
