We are incredibly grateful that Mrs. Wilson was able to join us today as our guest teacher. Settling right back into our routine, we were ready for analysis of spelling words, Jolly Phonics, math practice, and a series of specials. At the end of the day, Mrs. Wilson shared a strong set of compliments. She noticed how much we had grown since her last visit and is looking forward to spending the day with us again next Monday.
At the end of the day, we had an opportunity to document what we already know about our new country of focus – India. Working in our new table groups, we completed the first three portions of a KWHLAQ table – What do we KNOW about India? What do we WANT to know about India? and HOW do we plan to find out more? Over the course of the next few weeks, as we dive into our new inquiry on structure, we will expand our knowledge based and be able to document our LEARNING. Hopefully, an ACTION and addition QUESTIONS will result, as well.
We finished off our first day back with some festivities. What a better way to break the break than with a birthday and brownies. As someone who shares smiles and conveys caring generously each and every day, it was truly a privilege to sing and celebrate Cadence, a gift to our class.
