Snow play day #pbis

Image
Today,  we had a super fun time with an extra recess.  The snow was very wet so we could make snowmen and snow walls.  This classroom lit a lot of light bulbs in order to earn this extra recess.  Super job following our 3 school-wide expectations. 

 We all enjoyed having the snow family in the entrance way today.





Friday letters are coming home

Image
Every week, we write Friday letters.    Some of the scholars are challenging themselves to use our words of the week in their sentences.  Super proud of these hard workers.  So far, we have learned extraordinary, coincidence and suddenly! 










And the survey says......

Image
Today in math, the class worked on writing survey questions and then gathering data.  Over the next 2 days, we will be looking at the data  to answer questions and to write equations.  These scholars did a fabulous job asking and answering questions in a respectful way. As you can imagine, everyone wanted to get their answers, and it took mindful and thoughtful behavior, for everyone to complete this task. 













WOW-What a coincidence!

Image
Today during writing, we started our "word of the week" or WOW lessons.  We read the book "Ruby the Copycat" where the word coincidence was used several times.  If you are not familiar with the book, please ask your scholar to do a retell of the story.   Afterwards, we made our own sentences and pictures using the word coincidence.  We are also keeping a tally of how often this word is used in our writing, reading and speaking.
