Meetings with Olivia and Ethan... and our Black Swallowtail Butterfly!
Greetings Friends! Olivia started our day with a great meeting singing "One Bottle of Pop", the Earth toss greeting, and a fun round of the "acting out" game. Well done Olivia, and very nice message, for sure!!
We practiced handwriting with our spelling rule: abbreviations, and followed with rainbow writing.
We learned more about habitats and researched deserts today. We practiced writing "facts" and learning what a true fact is, while learning about the desert habitat. Tomorrow, we'll visit rain forest habitats, and learn more facts about rain forest animals! If you haven't heard... our chrysalises have popped! We were unsure what kind of butterfly would emerge... but with a little research, we now know we have Black Swallowtail butterflies! They are very beautiful, and fun to watch!
In math, we learned double digit addition the "second grade way" and enjoyed another math meeting lead by Ethan! Well done Ethan! We cycled back into place value with base 10 blocks, and reviewed tens, ones, and the importance of the "place" of the digit.
All school sing tomorrow, and Cafe Sun... for any who want to join us!! Should be fun!
