So recently, we had a couple of students complete the puzzle in the back of my room. There is always been a puzzle in the back for kids to fiddle with when they are done with their school responsibilites. This last one we did was HARD with all of the similar colors. Two students: Nathan and Conrad were my big puzzle people. Nathan took a second and posed for me!
We have started a new one that looks like it might not have so many similar colors. We'll see who ends up working on it.
This week all of the classes finished watching an NBC Special on the raid done on Osama bin Laden's compound a little over a year ago now. The kids can't believe that it has been a year already! It was a very interesting day for the students as they got to know some more of the details of that memorable day. And they got to see the Situation Room--this special was the first time that TVs were allowed in that part of the White House. Stay tuned for next week. Happy Memorial Day!
