Welcome back! What a great day! It was wonderful to see so many excited and friendly faces.
We started our day together by sharing about our vacation in our table groups.
Throughout the day students took turns introducing themselves to the class and asking a question about classroom procedures using Really Good Stuff’s Classroom Orientation Cards. This was fun and engaging.
During our Language Arts block we started writing an “I Am A Fifth Grader” poem. We will also be making an adjective art project to go along with the poem. I hope to post pictures once our completed projects are up on the wall.
During our Math block I introduced Calendar Math. It’s a wonderful way of practicing key standards on a regular basis.
In addition to teaching procedures, we spent some time as a class planting our classroom plants which now adorn our classroom library.
I’m looking forward to another great day tomorrow.
