A Bittersweet Friday

This day marks the end of the second marking period...and the dreaded last day for Mr. McGee.

The day began in a regular manner...the students went to PE and I planned for next week.

After PE we jumped into math rotations.  Students working with me practiced identifying and naming fractions of a set using word problems.  During guided practiced they completed their fractional fish aquariums.  Finally, those who participated in the technology rotation were able to choose any Fraction Internet site that is linked to the third grade web site.

After math, the children worked to complete the inquiry project and get it published.  Additionally, many finished the travel brochure.  Those who didn't need not worry.

After lunch and outdoor recess we finally had a chance to share our disease and parasite presentations.

Then the entire school gathered in the gym to have a surprise send off celebration for Mr. McGee.  If you follow me on Twitter (@runnerdana)you can see 2 pictures from it.

Remember, there is no school for students on Monday and Tuesday.  Tuesday is a grading and reporting work day for teachers.

Wednesday begin the third marking period and a new era with our wonderful acting principal, Mr. Bill Collins.
