I'm sorry for the late post, but I had trouble getting on to this site today and publishing. So better late than never!
Interestingly enough, today is National Awkward Moments Day! This is a day when we recognize that everyone has an awkward moment from time time. What does awkward mean?
Awkward means that something is difficult or tricky, or something that causes embarrassment. I can relate to that! It's like when you make a mistake and others see it, or you trip or fall in front of others. Once, when I was in elementary school, I dropped my lunch tray and my food went everywhere! I still remember the green peas all over the floor, and a big splot of mashed potatoes on the floor next to where a teacher was sitting!
Today's Book a Day is The Hula Hoopin' Queen, by Thelma Godin. What happens in this story that is awkward?
Do you have a hula hoop at home? It's great exercise and a good stress reliever!
Awkward moments reminds me of mistakes, so today's How It's Made is about erasers. I think we may have watched this one, but like a good book, you can learn more each time you see it or read it! This one is a little fuzzy, and it's not an actual How It's Made from the television show. This was made before that show was on t.v. and it's from Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. Enjoy!
You might want to practice subitizing to ten now. Remember looking at the dots on the Promethean and looking for different groups of dots? Several of us saw different groups; some saw 2 and four, some 3 and 3? Here's a video with Jack Hartmann to practice subitizing.
I'll be sending out an e-mail later tonight about a site you have access to with books that you can read on your own or with some help, books that are read to you, and books someone in your family can read to you. The instructions below will get you on to the site and in our Epic classroom..

I made homemade potato soup, bread and pudding today! I also washed a few windows! But the best part of my day was opening up my school e-mail and finding e-mails from some of you! I love the pictures and seeing what you are up to while we are away! The second best part of my day has been doing this blog. It sure isn't the same as being with you, but it makes me happy to know that we can still connect and learn together.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and see you real soon!
