Margaret’s math group has been working hard to figure out old they are. Of course, these 10- and 11- year-olds know their age in years, but Margaret challenged them to use more detail. They each made books showing their age, at that moment, in years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds!
The students sit with their book buddies during assembly. Charlotte asked the pairs to take a moment and talk about their favorite thing from this week at school. Several pairs shared and we heard about science, art, reading, playground time, handworks, and more.
As a grand finale, Charlotte and then Noah, led the entire assemblage in a rain song. Divided into three groups, the students rubbed their hands together – one group softly and one group vigorously – while the third group created the splash of raindrops by bouncing fingertips of one hand to the palm of another. It sounded just like the rain our ground is craving!
