In Socials, we finally finished our map of Canada.  It will be time to start memorizing the capital cities as we will be having a test on that soon.

Today was a crazy, mixed up day!  It was the last day for programming robots, so we had to make the most out of it!  Dr. Nelson, the Superintendent of Schools for our district came in to observe my wonderful students program their robots!  She was very impressed!

The first two blocks were robots, followed by Math, where we worked on p. 50+51.  Everyone finished them in class, or stayed in at lunch to finish it up! The last block before lunch was robots again!  We will be taking them apart tomorrow and passing them on to another class.

Unfortunately we did not have time to fill out our agenda books today as I was too busy with the robots, and we left to go to the arena for skating right at 1:00.  The students had cleaned up the classroom and stacked their chairs before we left, so they could be dismissed right from the bus.

Homework:

The students who are going to be Fit Kid Coaches will be bringing home a permission slip to be signed and returned tomorrow.

Cheers!

Ms. Kneller
