Jack MacKenzie Oratory
The highlight of the week has been poetry in our classroom! Students worked hard memorizing various poems and many wrote their own. Today the Jack MacKenzie 2017 Oratory was held in our gym. A boy and girl from our class represented our room and both did a fantastic job of presenting their poems. We have been working on speaking with clarity, expression, phrasing, and volume.
We have also begun a new unit in math. In this unit students will be learning about measurement. They will also learn to read a calendar and develop an understanding of linear measurement, distance around and mass. We began this unit with a friendly competition to see who could measure the most body parts. Students worked with a partner to trace themselves and then used their ruler to practice measuring in centimeters.
We also measured Mr. Clarke
