Busy, busy Friday! was a busy one, for sure!!!

We started the day with music but 9 students went to the computer lab, at this time, to complete the MAP-M testing from earlier in the week.

Then we went to the gym to visit the 4th grade Wax Museum.  The two fourth grade classes created a wax museum by researching a famous person and taking on the persona of this individual.  It was VERY well done!

When we returned to class, most students worked on their opinion paragraph.  Some students listened to/read an ebook about the production of bread.  The intention was for the students to read/listen to the ebook and chart the resources needed (natural, human, capital) to produce bread.  However, we were short on time.

Next, we took the fourth math quiz for this quarter.  The quizzes have been scored and returned to the children.  Please look for it in the math section of your child's binder.

After enjoying lunch and outdoor recess, the students continued working on their opinion paragraphs.  Those who were finished, practiced reading traditional tales, working on fluency, in preparation for our visit with our Kinder Buddies.

We ended the day with our Kinder Buddies.  First, we finished sharing the Key Note presentations.  Then we read a traditional tale to our buddies and identified the characteristics that make it categorized as one.
