Our class meeting started our day today. The students then had a little time to work on their first literature roles (round one tomorrow!) and then we discussed encouragement speeches and the students were given their first student to observe and write about. I will include a separate post on encouragement speeches. After recess, we did a review of the different weather gauges and then the groups were announced for the rain gauge groups and then they set about making and setting up their gauges. Good thing there is lots of rain in the short term forecast. After lunch, the fours and fives had a chance to catch up in their math and the sixes talked about triangles. We ended the day playing basketball in P.E.
