Playground Pals by Zander It was a very busy day today! We set up our page, did our agenda, and learned how to do our math entry sheet for a weekly draw! Can you think of two different ways to show the number 17 for tomorrow? Can you draw it with base ten blocks, write it as a word, or put it in a place value chart? If you can't, dont worry, you will be able to very soon! Our spelling word today was "watermelon" and our introduction was for "How to grow a watermelon". We were just about to start our doodle when Mrs. Hache came over the intercom and told us we were having a lockdown drill. Were you scared? Everyone did a great job, but I forgot to switch my phone to silent. When Mrs. Hache texted for my head count it made a loud noise. Thats why we practice! I'll be better next time. After the lock down we doodled a cat and started math. In math we reviewed place value chart and I showed you my quick way to draw base ten blocks. Can you draw 43 using base ten blocks? How about 243? (remember a square for 100, a line for 10, and a period for 1). Before we could do any work with the blocks we had to play with them and build things! I think we will be ready to make some patterns with them tomorrow! After recess we had language arts with Mrs. Hill. After lunch we had guidance with Mrs. Mackenzie. She talked about the brain. Do you remember any of the names of parts of the brain or what they do? After guidance we had PE. We must be working on our stamina for running. Did you pace yourself well? We finished up the day by grading some student work together, and then we went outside to help Mrs. Hache move some boards from the fall fair. We didnt get to do our book of gratitude writing today, but I think a good deed is maybe more important. I think its supposed to rain tomorrow, so get lots of sleep and dress warm. Remember that tomorrow is picture day here at IBP! Have a great day and I will see you tomorrow.
