Sometimes You Need a Fresh Start!

You know it's going to be "One of those days" when you go to iron your pants and you discover the hem has come undone.  I should have known it was going to be one of those days.
We started out the morning with bus evacuation which upset our music class.  When we came back we had a big class discussion about our rules and being a 95% 4th grader.  After some refreshers on expectations and some table re-arranging, we were back in the saddle and going off at a full gallop!  So, just like the hem on the pants, anything that comes undone, can be stitched up.
After our complicated morning, we spent time reading the book Eli by Bill Peet and discussing the moral of the story.  We also drew lions that will become part of our next art exhibit.
Our favorite activity of the day, though, was the post-it facts activity.  Students were asked to write one fact about monarchs per post-it note.  Some kids got up to 24 facts!  These facts will later be categorized and used in our writing of our monarch books.  See some of our pictures below:
