Today we worked on independent reading and writing projects. Some of these projects included learning more about Tornado Alley. We also worked on finishing our writing samples.
Later, we learned a new game called "3 Spins to Win" so we can have fun adding different quantities of money together.
After lunch, we heard about Paul from Wayside School and had more independent reading and writing time.
Then we learned more about how storms form from Bill Nye Science guy. Finally, we created a 3-D paper tornado model! Whew...it was a busy busy day and we worked right up until the last minute of the day!
Tomorrow I will be dedicating time to evaluating your child's strengths and areas that need growth. They have each come so far this year, and it is a precious time to contemplate the individual needs of each child. For that reason, report card planning days are so very important - quiet time to reflect and plan about student learning.
The weather looks to be lovely this weekend- enjoy the time with your family!
