Today we started our volleyball unit with some volleying. After recess, the students were off to French class.

We started the day doing the last of the week two questions for Math4today and then the students had an extended block to work on their Albanesi cards. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, we read two stories (Rabbit and Bear Paws: Honesty and Misaabe’s Stories) about this month’s Grandfather Teaching on Honesty… the students then summarized the beginning, middle and end of one of the stories and worked on two more letters bringing our total so far to ten; only five more to go. After lunch, we had passion time and students started to explore some of their project ideas that had already been approved. We then did daily physical activity before the kids ended their day in French class.
