This morning was kind of a crazy morning! Ms. Watkins' group had music, then Mrs. Stanford's group had gym and then we passed Ms. Watkins' group in the hallway on the way to their gym time! Last week we wrote "Wishes" for grade two. Many of us wrote that we wanted to make more friends. So, during the half group time we wrote in our journals about what it means to be a good friend and what we can do to make new friends. We came up with lots of great ideas including:
- check the buddy bench to see if someone is lonely
- teach someone something new
- make compromises
After recess we had some math review. We did some skip counting by 2's, 5's and 10's, practiced numbers and reviewed the power of ten. This afternoon we learned about the proportions of a self-portrait and started our own. We were all a little surprised that the eyes were not located at the top of the face. Ask me where they are supposed to go! We also watched a Tourism video of British Columbia. Ask me what kind of "giants" can be found in BC.
Have a great night!
