What a fun time was had by all on our annual Walk-About! I always enjoy connecting with families and students this day, and was pleased by the turnout we had. It was a little chilly, but I think we all survived. Students also learned some fun facts about water as they finished the event. Thank you to our PFO for their organizational skills! I hear the students raised quite a bit of money that will be put to good use by the school.
We have started a new conceptual unit in math this week. Students are learning about comparing, ordering, and even & odd. We took a pre-test today to see what everyone's starting point is, and will divide into groups from there. After our test, the students practiced comparing numbers with a game. We will work on this same concept tomorrow with a different, but related game, and start more traditional paper pencil work as well. Remember, every unit begins with hands-on learning moving towards paper/pencil activities. Every day students will practice math facts, complete a DMR (Daily Math Review), participate in a mini-lesson, and play menu math games to reinforce the core curriculum concept.
