After reading a biography on Roberto Clemente, the students were asked to write a letter ad if they were him giving advice to an aspiring athlete. Malaika, Johnny, Gabrielle, Chelsey, Brandon, & Mark each shared their letters and took comments or questions from the class.
On Wednesday I introduced the distributive property with the help of an all time favorite game, Angry Birds. The kids worked with a partner to break apart arrays and then take a stab at playing the game. Give your child a multiplication problem and ask them to play Angry Birds to show the distributive property.

Mr. Bird read us a story on Thursday and we joined him in the gym to independent read. I was so impressed with their stamina reading for an entire 25 minutes.
Our school, with Mr. Bird, signed up for an independent reading contest. If our school is picked we'll win free books!
