COTTONWOOD! Oh Yeah!!!
Thursday began with Mackenaie's wonderful morning meeting... hand holding twirling greeting, great song, and the "ZOOM!" game (by popular demand). Well done Mackenzie! We had a productive morning on work board while Ms. W. met with readers. This afternoon we learned a new energizer after Ethan's awesome math meeting... "double double this this, double double that that, double this, double that, double double this that!! What quick, agile learners you all are! FUN! We solved story problem this afternoon in math with POW, and showed our thinking using picture, words, numbers, and the answer!! Today we worked with subtraction problems, and remembered how important a clear, organized, accurate picture is when showing your thinking. Now while all that was going on, PTO was getting ready for the BIG EVENT OF TODAY! COTTONWOOD!! That's right, the band Cottonwood played live... at our school... while we were treated to delicious BBQ chicken, dogs, fresh veggies, home grown salads, watermelon, and snow cones!!!! OH MY, does it get any better than this?? Incredible live music, beautiful dancing smiling children, delicious BBQ, and sharing it with our whole Sunderland community??? Not sure it gets any better. Today, it was really all about the after school party! Great day friends! Fun Friday tomorrow!
