Today will be a positive day with a Valentine's Day theme of being kind and caring to yourself and others. We'll begin the day by voting for Valentine's Day Mailbox winners in multiple categories from most creative to most humorous to most mechanical and scientific. We'll help one another complete the fraction stories. Then there will be some time for recess. After that I'll read Lester's book, Let's Talk about Race, and then students' will create self-affirming wordles that describe who they are with lots of positive words--those wordles will become part of students' portfolios. There will also be time for reading and then some time to pass out Valentine's Day cards too. A happy day!
