An assembly started our day today. There was a lot to cover everything from lunches to safety and from Christmas families to juice boxes. Plus lots of information about various sports teams. When we got back to class we did Math4Today, a multiplication minute (actually 5 minutes) and then we started expanding our Snoopy pictures. I cannot stress enough blocking off individual squares and drawing just what is in the square Students were also asked to bring in their own cartoon characters for the next phase in their expansion art. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, the students were off to French. After lunch, in Buddies, Ms. Butler read the story the Greedy Triangle and the students settled into trying to make a variety of different shapes with their triangles and twisting circle shapes. We ended the day with a bit of self selected time.
