I told the class this morning how proud I was of the resulting marks from their tests this week! If there was more time in the day, I would have liked to write positive comments on ALL test packets! Instead, since we were so busy, everyone received verbal compliments and high fives!
(And Oreo cookies at lunch time!)
We had a busy day on Monday with Christmas show practice, check-ups with the nurse, and Grandparent's/Veteran's Day. This week we also spent a lot of time learning about our own DNA as the class collected some data and transformed this into our own long double helix in the classroom! Finally, the kids really enjoyed performing our second reader's theatre this year. Check out the website for photos of these events.
Today we complied our Book It minutes for the first half of November and I'm proud to report that we are past our halfway mark! We have worked together to read 8,660 minutes so far!
We had a wonderful week in terms of green beans as well! We are up to 58 cans! WOW! Our last day of collecting is Thursday when we will collect the boxes from the classroom and get them packed up and organized for pick up! Thank you so much for all your kind hearts and generosity!
