We started the day with our appreciation circle. (We first had to take a few minutes to write down some of the things that we appreciate amongst one another.) Students then had time to finish up some of the math that they started yesterday. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, the students had book exchange and then some time to read their selections silently. In the afternoon we had Buddies. We watched “For the Birds” and then students picked amongst three different choices to record what they would do in a variety of social situations.
