4th Grade Buddies! Woohoo!!
Greetings Thursday Thinkers! Charlie started our day off with a great morning meeting... complete with koosh greeting, "This Land Is Your Land" and our new game: Alibi! Well done everyone! We found a lot of "great work" during word study too! Work board was full of literacy activities that challenged our thinking and stretched our understanding of Christopher Columbus. We also worked together with committee members when help was needed!
Math could not have gone any better! When asked... on a scale of 1 to 5 (1, hated it... 5, loved it, went great) second graders agreed! Today, math was a 5! Well done friends! We stretched our thinking and coin counting skills with a fun activity called "Today's date in money"! We made today's date in money 3 different ways! Nice practice counting, writing, using the cents sign, and thinking/talking about money ( I mean... who doesn't like money?). Nice work second grade!
We ended our day with our 4th grade reading/project buddies! They will join us in our letter writing project to Malawi students, and share our enthusiasm in trying to make a difference with our new African friends! Mrs. Bolte and Ms. Worthley have lots of fun ideas and activities that will help foster this special global connection with Malawi! Can't wait until the next time we get to meet and work with our super cool 4th grade buddies! Woohoo!
