Students are beginning the skills to discern patterns and explain their reasoning. 

All students participated in juggling today and a few are already able to juggle three scarves!

Today began with a very productive parent meeting and loads of supplies from parents!

Today Dr. Melinda Kalainoff visited my classroom this morning. She will be consulting with Rio del Sol teachers this year. She was here during the morning's design challenge. 

The students took on the Spaghetti Tower Challenge. 20 sticks of spaghetti, 1 yard of string, and 1 yard of tape to make the tallest structure that will hold a marshmallow. 

This afternoon students took a second try at using Play-Doh to make something representing themselves. The results improved. Many students couldn't think of anything yesterday. Today they really thrived!

Wednesday was the first day with students for the 2019-20 school year. I had SO many positives I'm not sure if I can count them all!

The staff at Rio del Mar was very welcoming to the Rio del Sol Satellite teachers and invited us to be in their first-day photo.

So many parents said hello and were excited about the new school year.

The students accepted the challenge of completing the picture and the results were impressive. 

I had fun with the photo filter. 

The students seemed to have a very good day and I certainly enjoyed getting to know them just a little.
