Today we had a hiccup with buses delivering students later than expected, however, upon arrival, their classmates filled them in and soon everyone was participating.
The mascot project began today. I started with a Chalk Talk to find out what students knew. They then shared mascots they knew of and reasons for the choices. For example: Houston Rockets near NASA. Rio del Mar dolphins since they live in the sea.
It was an excellent start to our short week.
