Thank you for you help while I was gone. It sounds like the kids were productive and had a great time the last three days. I missed them and I'm so excited to be back. Here are a few pictures, just because...I'll post about your kids tomorrow, I promise!
A little extra recess is good for the soul! The last 10 minutes of our day were sunny and beautiful! I hope you all have a wonderful end to the week and a fabulous weekend. I miss the kids already and I'm looking forward to being back on Tuesday.
We went to the computer lab today and started Google Presentations. We creating a slide show all about ourselves. Today we just typed and learned how to use the program. Next time we will add pictures and learn more about how to use the word processing features. We did really well. We have some tech savvy students.
Our reading buddies came today! We are so lucky to have them! We read to them and they read to us. It was pretty fun and we can't wait for them to come back.
We did another vocabulary brain break today. We learned hush, creep, celebrate, and heartache. Can you guess which is which?
We take brain breaks when we need to move and re-focus. One of our favorites is a dancing break. Each time we learn new vocabulary words and the dance moves that go along with them. Today, we danced to gab, scent, telescope, silence, and lively. Can you guess what the movements looked like? Ask us!
Today we harvested fingerling potatoes! They are shaped like fingers. We spent 20 minutes before lunch helping out in the garden. The soil was really hard, but once we started digging it was like digging for gold. We're looking forward to seeing them for lunch...maybe tomorrow when we have burgers and herb roasted potatoes!
We had the most amazing day. We earned three marbles in our marble jar putting us at 10 marbles towards a class party. Woohoo! We started a new rotation in the classroom for reading and math and it went great! We're looking forward to trying it again tomorrow.
