We started the day with our appreciation circle. The students then worked on their sentences for making big words. It was three times their grade level today. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we had silent reading and then reading with a friend. (No book exchange because of the book fair.) After lunch, in buddies, we read the first chapter of Chasing Vermeer and then tried to solve problems involving pentominoes. We ended the day talking about the upcoming math/art or Mart assignment.
