What a busy day! The children had a great time making their suitcases for our Read the U.S.A. books. As part of our Book a Day, we will be reading books that are set in a specific state, or are about a person from that state. We will work our way across the U.S. and the District of Columbia throughout the year. With each book read, I will send home a postcard that tells about the state and book we read. Your child can collect the postcards and put them in the suitcase they made today to keep track of the books and states. We visited Pennsylvania today and read Saving the Liberty Bell, by Megan McDonald. Ask me to tell you how John Jacob Mickley and his father saved the Liberty Bell!
The children worked on the Chromebooks today as I finished our Unit 1 math testing. If you go to our Google classroom, your child can log on and play some of the games selected for them. Some games are for everyone, and some will just show up on some of the students page, depending upon what they need to work on. Some of those same websites are on our homework page, as well as a few fun games to play that are listed on the right-hand side of the page.
I'm looking forward to a five day week next week with no half days! Have a great weekend!
