Today was our second annual team building day. The students participated in a variety of activities that required teamwork. Some of the activities included tug of war, stuffed animal relay, bean bag toss and our favorite, the parachute.
The students even got to enjoy some time playing on our playground.
This week we started on our first week of Wonders. Our essential question was "How do friends depend on each other?" We read a story about a baby bird that was afraid to fly out of the nest and his friends offered to help him out. We practiced visualizing while reading and drew some pictures.
We are off to a good start on our math program as well. This week we focused on different strategies when doing math facts. Remember that the student's homework will be assigned by me. They should just do the problems that are assigned.
Overall, it was a WONDERFUL first full week. It was so great to see so many of you at back to school night last night. I know what a busy time of the year it is for everyone and I appreciate that you took the time to come. I look forward to working with you as well as your children.
