We read our next story in Weighty Word, Expedient. The kids have finally realized that the animals in the story are related to the word for each week. Love it when they get to the "AH-HA!" moment!
We spent some time in the Computer Lab beginning to type our Mystery Stories. Many of the kids learned how to get to Office 365, so they can save documents to access both at home and at school. If you'd like to try this at home, check it out here:
The user name is going to be in the format of: firstname.lastname@example.org for MOST students. However, if the student shares a name with other students in Cobb there will be a random number after the lastname. We could check that at school. The password will always be their network password, the same they use to login to CCSD computers on campus. If they forget this password your media specialist can reset it. Students can access O365 on any device that has internet access, on or off campus; that is one of the greatest things about it! They just need to go to www.cobbk12.org > parents > Office 365 login.
We continued our Mindfulness Practice with Mindful Breathing and Listening Activity. The kids were very engaged in hearing all the sounds they could.
We ended our day with another chapter in our novel, Be a Perfect Person in Three Days. Milo gave up the broccoli, but had to do something SOOOO hard for an entire day! He's trying so hard to be perfect. Ask your child what Milo had to endure. This led to a great discussion about one of our character traits: Perseverance. The kids shared examples from their lives when they've shown this trait.
HW: NONE! Enjoy the Break!
Until next time,
