Our class meeting started our day today. We then did Math4today week 9 day 4 and then students worked on their Albanesi cards. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we looked at the record keeping for the 5 days of eating and then students answered the reflection questions on page 34. For next week students need to bring a dinnertime main course recipe. In PE, we played another game of “pass”ketball. After lunch, there were a couple of groups that needed to shore up what they were testing but there were also several groups that began testing. We ended the day looking at the core competencies. One way was by watching videos made by Dormick Park Elementary. C.C. Videos
