Arts Ed- Students watched their One Love green screen video.

Lunch

Carpet Time

Daily 5 Centres- I have started re-testing some students who I think have shown growth in the last few months. If they come home and tell you their new level, that means they are now allowed to take home that level of home reading, and their Raz Kids will be updated. Reminder that our Raz Kids teacher login is dmaley and their password is abc.

Recess

Phys Ed- We did a whole bunch of balance stations today. The kids balanced balls on a badminton racket, they tried to hold their arms and legs off the ground on an exercise ball, they walked on a balance beam, and they balanced a bean bag on a body part.

Quiet Time- Declan, our helper of the day, picked a shark book for us to read.
