The chart below shows the plan for the day as it looked this morning before I opened the door. There are at least two mistakes in it. Can your child read this list of activities and tell you two of the things shown on the chart that we did not do today? [Answer at end of post.]
The opening lesson this morning was "Reading Magic" in the pocket chart. Singing the sounds of these words in one note really helps the students blend the sounds into words. Each word on the chart suggested a song for us to sing together.
Tonight's homework is "I Spy with Geometry" on page 9 in the Home Links book. We played this game in class today. Also, go outside at about 7:00 PM this evening and look in the eastern sky for the full moon. Fog permitting, I'll be looking at the same moon from my canoe this evening as it rises over Tomales Bay. A full moon paddle. What better way to spend the final day of your fifth decade?
Tomorrow is my birthday. I have a special math project we'll do tomorrow.
We're going to have a morning off centers and catch up with our rained-out bike day. If you're one of our regular Thursday volunteers, well, you've got the day off. Or, bring along your adult bike and join me for a few laps around the playground. It's fun.
[Answer to the question about what we did not do: We did not have PE or Library today. We also did not read Bianca's story today as planned. It will have to wait until tomorrow.
