We started our day with a team-building activity called "Marshmallow Challenge". The kids worked in groups to build the tallest structure using spaghetti, tape, string and a marshmallow. The results were interesting, to say the least!
The kids signed up for Edmodo, and I can tell they are excited about it already!
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 practiced a bit of mindfulness with Til the Thinker & Widdle the Worrier and Clouds.
We started our Mystery Unit with an interesting video. Check it out here: Harris Burdick. We also started our novel study, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.
