We began the day recapping all the holidays we learned about during our cultures unit: Ramadan, Eid, Kwanzaa, Hanukah, New Years (specifically Chinese New Year), Birthdays around the world, and Christmas around the world.
Then we had French and then Gym.
After first recess and lunch we had Music. When we reviewed, we marked our homework from yesterday to check for understanding. Then we talked about different strategies we could use when counting money amounts together: For example a ball is $1.00 and a doll is $2.30. Together we would need 3 dollars and 30 cents to buy both. We then worked in groups and pretended we were grocery shopping and we found the cost of various items together.
After second recess and lunch we completed a challenge in partners!! Ms. Jaskolka put envelopes all over the classroom and in each envelope had a clue about a specific holiday. We had 26 envelopes with clues inside This was so much fun!!!
