We got our notebooks set up, starting with some basics like our Class Rules and Procedures. Several of the kids didn't have their notebooks and folders today. It would be wonderful if those supplies came in next week.
We worked together to develop our collaboration and problem solving skills while we solved the "Cup Stack Challenge". Check out the fun below:
We revisited our multiple intelligences with a short survey. It's great for kids to see how their talents and interests may have changed since last year. These surveys also help us to provide opportunities for our students to work in their area of strength more often.
We refreshed our mindfulness practice with an old favorite, "4-7-8 Breathing". Check it out and maybe try it yourself after a long day at work!
We started our book, Twenty-One Balloons, with a fun activity discussing modes of travel and then comparing and contrasting hot air balloon travel to one of the other modes of travel. Check out their great ideas below:
