Today we met our first grade buddies! We built a few challenges using our Intooba kits to break the ice and get to know each other. We were great role models, and we look forward to building relationships with these awesome first graders for the rest of the year.
Today we played around with word choice in poetry and how it changes tone. We used the poem April Rain Song by Langston Hughes. Can you change some of the words to make it dark and dreary or lonely and sad? Then we practiced contrasting poems about other subjects.
Today in math, we partnered up and tested our geometry vocabulary, listening, and drawing skills. Given an image, could you accurately describe it to a partner in a way that they could draw it? No peeking...it's more challenging than it seems.
