Our class meeting started our day today. We did share some bad jokes before the meeting started, this is something that I would like to start the day with on Mondays on a regular basis. We then continued our look at fat and skinny questions. We also began a look at determining what is important in a text by reading an article about how honey is made and ants. If students did not finish answering question six from the ant article then this is for homework. Read along was before recess. After recess, we read and watched the video If the World Were a Village. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrcOdLYBIw0 The story that takes the world’s population and then shrinks it down to a village of 100 people. After lunch, we started a look at place value in math. We also explored standard notation, written form, and expanded form using numbers from If the World Were a Village. We ended the day playing towel volley in the gym for P.E.
