Monday June 18th

Today we read about values in Fully Alive and discussed how values are portrayed in television shows and advertisements.  We went outside to play KanJam, and Mrs. Gallant got an INSTANT WIN!  It was pretty hot, so we came in and watched part of a Full House show for Fully Alive.  We played Kahoot to help us study for our Social Studies Quiz, and completed an online review task on Google Classroom.  We wrote an assessment for math to see how far we’ve come since September and finished the day working on our jackdaw documents.
