Touch Session

Today we had our second touch session. First of all we had a warm up game. Shortly after we went into our first activity. It was an interesting activity. Our couch told us we had to learn all of the basics before you play actual touch. He taught us a unique technique called "Two man settle". After that we continued on developing the skill. Then our coach told us to have a quick round of a game touch. But there was a downside, we had no time due to our new reliever and us students not listening. Then we headed back to class.

Carrie's Cubes

Here is the problem we worked on today on our Math lesson. If you want to solve it or give it a try then go for it. We found making a model with cubes actually helped us with our lesson.

Carrie has glued some cubes together to make a large solid cube with nine small cubes showing on a face.
She paints the large cube red.

How many of the original small cubes have:
  1. three faces painted red

  1. two faces painted red

  1. one face painted red

  1. no faces painted red

Glenbrae Kids

This morning after Reciprocal Reading we headed down to Glenbrae Kids for a little visit. Once we got there, we all had to pick a partner that we would cooperate with during our visit there. Shortly after we selected our partners we had to read a book to them. After we read a book to them and also playing toys with them we had to say our goodbyes. It was a great experience with the little kids their at Glenbrae Kids. Then later on we came back to our classroom.

 A funny thing that happened was that a bird came into our senior corridor and threatened us (lol) .Image result for Glenbrae kids
