The fourth graders met their first grade buddies this afternoon and got to spend some time together on the playground. A fun time was had by all as the children began bonding and preparing for a year of learning from each other. We look forward to many more Friday afternoons together this year.

We also spent time playing some math games this morning. Close to 1,000 is a game that challenges students’ number sense as they put digits into numbers and add them together in an attempt to get as close to 1,000 as possible.
