    I loved seeing everyone at our Class Meeting yesterday and thought each person did a super job  with their poem!

    It was so much fun listening to each person and laughing together:) I hope you are taking some time to laugh with your families!

    A reminder that we will have our next Class Meeting on Thursday, May 21st this week instead of our usual Wednesday.

    Don't forget to stand up tall and put your right hand over your heart.

     

    Fun and Optional: Weather Observation

    Today we have a morning activity about Weather since we will be going outside for our Science Lesson.

    Get a piece of paper and fold it in half and then half again. Now you have 4 quarter sections. Count them!

    Remember that a paper divided into 4 quarter sections makes 1 whole paper just like 4 quarter coins make 1 dollar:)

    Look out your window and observe the kind of weather it is today. Is it sunny, partly sunny, cloudy, rainy, or windy?

    Draw a picture on the weather on your paper in the first section. How does the weather outside make you feel?

    Record the temperature with the help of a parent. Math in real life:)

    Look outside again at lunchtime and again at dinnertime. Observe how the weather has changed and record the changes

    on your paper in the 2nd and 3rd quarter sections.

    In the last quarter section draw the favorite activity you did outside today:) Don't forget to include the weather!
