Poor, poor Fred. He was having a wonderful day sailing his beautiful boat when suddenly his boat capsized! The boat turned upside down with his life preserver underneath and Fred was hanging on for his life. The students had to rescue Fred and help him into his preserver using only 4 paperclips. They were not allowed to touch Fred, the boat or the life preserver with their hands. Much discussion, strategies, failed attempts and tons of laughter helped rescue Fred.
We had a fantastic first week of school. Much time was spent getting to know each other and we will continue to build classroom community throughout the year.
This is my first experience at writing a blog so, please be patient as I learn to navigate the software.
Here are some fun photo booth photos we took on the first day.
