Today is a mostly focused on student learning. We have several weeks ahead that include lots of days like this. The good routine and attention to students' needs supports good academic and social-emotional growth.
Our naturalist coach will lead students in activities that teach them what climate change is and why it is happening. This is part of our environmental education program.
The "Behavior" of the Base Ten Place Value System
Students will study the "behavior" of the base ten place value system. They'll look closely at the powers of ten and how each place to the left increases in value by X10 and each place to the right decreases by X 1/10 or divide by 10.
Colleagues and I will finalize plans and information related to our upcoming hike to a local conservation area.
