French started the day today for the students. A message from Mdme. Dycus Practice dictionary skills at home with a regular English dictionary. The test will be in 1 1/2 weeks; the actual date is TBA. When the students returned to class we continued our look at the global goals. Today we discussed goals 6-10. Read along was before recess. After recess, we headed to the gym to participate in our second water polo session. (There are a number of forms that have yet to be returned. Please make sure to return those immediately as they are now overdue!) Students learned an egg beater kick and had some time to practice throwing and catching with one arm. After lunch, we continued our look at habitats while determining facts vs opinions. http://wwf.panda.org/about_our_earth/ecoregions/about/habitat_types/habitats/ Today we used the Polar Regions for our examples. We ended the day with students creating their S.M.A.R.T. goal(s) for HACE. Please have these done for next Wednesday as they students will be evaluating their progress by Oct. 14.
