It might have been a short week (only 3 days), but it was definitely busy!
We have been waiting all year for this day. We finally got our recorders! Mrs. Turner even taught us “Hot Cross Buns” and Connor already earned his white belt! Hopefully by next week, we will all have a white belt.
Geometry was the focus for math this week. We learned about parallel and perpendicular lines, and obtuse, acute, and right angles.
It was brief, but we had a webinar with OdySea Aquarium. Our connection wasn’t too great, but we did get to see an Armadillo and a few penguins!
We celebrated our new Student of the Month at the Flag Ceremony. Congratulations Dominic!
We had not one, but two Socratic Seminars this week! Topics of discussion, should kids be allowed screens in their bedrooms and should people keep exotic animals as pets. We used evidence from the text to support our opinions. We are really working on honing our speaking and listening skills. Most of us are really strong with one, but still need practice with the other.
The Global Kindness Project is starting early this year. We decided to continue using our kindness log we started during #GKP17. We will continue using it through the end of the year! Mrs. Moore also read Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson. It really was a special book with an unforgettable message.
What great accomplishments to you have this week?
