We started our day with a team-building activity called "Pasta Race". The kids worked in groups to move spaghetti from one side to the other using only 2 foam plates--without touching the pasta! The results were interesting, to say the least!
The kids signed up for Edmodo, and I can tell they are excited about it already! We also started our Tagxedos for the front of our Target notebooks.
We also practiced a bit of mindfulness with Til the Thinker & Widdle the Worrier and Clouds.
Later we worked on starting the basics of our Interactive Target Notebooks. The kids did a good job making their notebooks unique and getting ready for our work together. We also had a great time "Voting with our Feet", as we made choices and moved from one side of the room to another.
We started our unit by reading a bit of our book, The Twenty-One Balloons.
Until next week,
