We had a fabulous first day of school. Â It was especially exciting to make history at University Schools, as we are the first class to not use ordinary chairs, but use stability balls instead. Â Students learned all about the history of the exercise ball. Â You can give your child a pop quiz and ask where was the ball invented.
Also, a BIG part of 4th grade being a success is having a safe and fun learning community. We read a book,Â I Love Monkey and discussed the value of loving ourselves the way we are. Â Also, we watched a Pixar Short called “Day and Night”. Â Although we may be as different as day and night, we are discussing the value of learning about others who are completely different than ourselves.
So far a fantastic start to 4th grade! Â Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow.
