Today we sorted Legos bricks and added them to our menu of choices at choice time. Mrs. Gronlund taught the lesson (it was a lesson, actually—a disguised math lesson in sorting and classifying). Her lesson went very well. She had a bunch of her fellow student teachers and her SSU professor looking on as she taught. We all agreed that she did very well.
Tomorrow we'll teach another lesson in math, this one about volume. I'll try to take some photos and show you what the students discover. We will also start our excellent music program with Andrew tomorrow, as well as visit the school library.
A new set of center will arrive Thursday. We need parent volunteers to fill some vacancies in our volunteer chart. Without them, I have to plan centers that do not require leadership. I hope we can attract enough volunteers to lead 6 centers each morning. Here's a note you'll find in your child's hands asking for your help as a classroom volunteer:
Please try to help us. The quality of the centers depends on getting more help leading centers.
You can add your name to the volunteer chart by the door:
