First order of business was a walk on the nature trail to talk about how plants & trees grow stronger with sun, wind, and rain. Then we compared them to people, discussing how we grow stronger when supported with love and given challenges to overcome.
Next, we worked on a new Hands On Equations lesson. This was a good review of previous concepts with a new component, parentheses in the equations. The kids did well and will finish up that lesson next week.
Finally, we got a brief introduction to the term "Binary" and learned how to code our initials or nickname in binary code. We'll make our "Binary Bead Bracelets" next week.
HW: Create a drawing of your tree with sun, rain cloud, roots, and branches. Look at the Edmodo post for photos to help.
Can't wait to see this kids again next week--for a FULL day!
