We had our first indoor recess of the year. We played some board games.
This week we started our Global Read Aloud. Our new friends in Virginia skyped us. We talked about the book we both read, "The North Star" by Peter H. Reynolds. We taught the students in Virginia about our Canadian hero Terry Fox, and they taught us about the American hero Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The next day we read two short books about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We learned that MLK changed the world through peaceful protests. We also learned about Rosa Parks and how she was arrested for not giving up her seat on a bus to a white person. MLK was shot in April of 1968 in Memphis, Tennesse.
In French we wrote a description about a friend and about ourselves. We are learning about patterns in Math. There are growing, shrinking and repeating patterns.
This week was awesomeamazing!
