Friends by Damien I almost missed my post today! Sorry for the late entry! We started off the day with a sharing circle. We took time to ask how each other was feeling and practiced being good listeners and speakers. Then we reviewed our five classroom rules. Do you remember all five? We did our spelling word of the day "emergency" and an introduction for "How to handle an emergency". We did a quick doodle of a seahorse and then we went to language arts with Mrs. Hill. We worked with the ending "ed" and added it on to words to show things in the past tense. We also did a round of the daily 5. After recess we had math, but before we did Alexis took some time and read her journal to us and showed some pictures on the smartboard. Do you remember what she was talking about? We started our math reviewing the value of three different coins; Pennies, nickels, and dimes. We practiced counting nickles and pennies together. We even did a money worksheet with just those two coins. How do we write 36 cents with a dollar sign? After a beautiful outdoor lunch we had hot lunch! Thank you to all the volunteers who come in and help make that program possible! After we ate we went to the computer lab and learned how to make a folder, find a Remembrance day image online, and save it in our folder. In PE we had a warm up, played the witch game, and had a game where you couldn't smile! We ended the day with some mindful breathing and yoga stretches, did our book of gratitude, got our agenda's signed, and packed up for home! Get lots of rest, dress warm, and I will see you in the morning!
