WE made it!!!  Today marks the last day before Spring Break!!

This morning the entire school participated in a bus evacuation practice.  After that, my reading class read and discussed a historical fiction book titles, Baseball Saved Us.  This book is about a young boy named Short whose family was forced into an internment camp following the bombing of Pearl harbor.  It was a great story that sparked A LOT of discussion.

Although I said we weren't having a quiz in math, I still needed to get a few, I had to give a brief assessment activity (sorry!).  Please look for this "activity" in your child's home folder.  It covered equivalent fractions and probability.

Following art, lunch and outdoor recess my reading class organized their desks and their folders to get ready for the new marking period.  Then, students who still had independent work to completed did so.  The class watched pieces of footage, on United Streaming, about the bombing of Pearl harbor and the Japanese internment class.  This was a follow up to this morning's read aloud.

We ended the day by hosting the kindergarten students and Mrs. Brawner's class for a gallery walk of our sound projects.

Have a wonderful Spring Break!
