I know drills, fire, tornado, and lock down are important. I’m glad the community is looking into the best way to protect the students during a disaster. The district, fire, EMTs, and police are doing drills with the school. It is just couldn’t we have done this last semester spread out over time? Couldn’t we do it after April? Do we have to have multiple drills and swimming in the weeks before the state TAKS?
Why does my school get stuck with having 4th grade swimming the 2 weeks before the writing TAKS every single year? It isn’t the same as having specials because with transport it takes 1 hour 15 to 1 hour 20 minutes instead of 45 minutes.
Today was a good day. With the exception of one 3rd grade class, everyone was well behaved. I was even able to praise the 5th graders LOL. 5th grade did a qwizdom activity and started a Flow Think map about the formation of Fossil Fuels.
4th grade did a Qwizdom activity on the 5 times and division tables. We are going to start their vodcasts on how do do long division.
3rd grade created a circle thinking map describing the number 24 in terms of multiplication problems and started a powerpoint graphically showing different multiplication problems that equal 24.
2nd grade used base 10 blocks to show how to add using regrouping. They are going to create photostories explaining how they solved their problems.
1st grade made a Circle map describing 12 using addtion problems. They are also going to use photostories to describe addition and subtraction problems.
Kindergarten just went over procedures.
Loren had dance, so Sis didn’t need me to pick her up.
I got home and was able to work with the dogs for a while.
