Everyone seems to finally be settling back into our routine after the break.  Today was our first day of winning an award of free time for the end of the day, and only the second time all year that the entire class all wrote on the proper side of our morning sheet to start the day!  Small wins are awesome! 

We started the day with our new morning sheet.  Our solving words was in the form "cvcv" and was a place (here).  Our spelling word was "inquiry" and our CPTTS was for "a carrot".  We also doodled a carrot.  We also did another amazing round of read to self and we set up a quote page that we will finish tomorrow. 

After an indoor recess we had math.  We did a listening quiz with meters, centi-meters, and kilometers.  What unit would use to measure - the height of the cential bridge?  Your desk?  The distance to Fredericton?  Then we watched an old video to help us with our Mathletics.  If you are counting by 5's which would be the odd number out 10, 20, 25, 31, 35 or 40?  How do you know?  Everyone has their Mathletics login cards.  I can tell lots of students are working at home.  Great job! 

After a beautiful outdoor lunch we had PE with Miss McFarlene.  Did you dance your feet off?  Then we had computer.  Today we learned how to screen shot and save a picture from Scratch to paint.   This will be very helpful to anyone who wants to do a coding project for STEM Fair.  We finished off the day getting our egg drop packets for those who requested them.  Please take lots of pictures of the process as this could also be a STEM Fair project later on.  It doesnt have to be, but options are good!  We won some freetime so we did a quick desk clean and some of my readers looked at poems to read for the music festival.  I signed the agenda's and we called it a day.

Have a great night, get lots of sleep, dress warm,  and I will see you tomorrow!
