In math we've been learning about doubles and near doubles facts. Today we learned that the order of the addends doesn't change the sum. We are learning about healthy eating and writing a paragraph about why eating healthy is important. We had celery for a snack! Nineteen students thought the celery was good (with ranch dressing.) Yesterday the Principal, Mrs. Neal, visited our classroom. She reminded us not to say bad words. She also said that when you arrive at school in a car, you should be ready to get out quickly with your backpack in the car with you. Another thing she told us was to wear clothing that is good for play, p.e. and recess. This includes shoes with backs, and no spaghetti strap tops. Tops should have at least a two finger width at the shoulder. Tomorrow morning our class gets to lead the whole school in the Star-Spangled Banner.
