We had a fantastic time at The Outdoor School! Thank you to all of the parent chaperons (I spell checked this.... it still looks wrong to me!) .... we could not have done this without you!
Today in math class (or what should be math class), we tied up some Outdoor School loose ends. To begin, we changed out the string on our Outdoor School necklaces so that they wouldn't be so scratchy! We do this in preparation for adding school related beads today. Students receive beads to add to their necklaces based on accomplishments and service.
Next, we focused on our theme PRIDE (perseverance, respect, integrity, discipline, and encouragement). I asked the students to choose one boy and one girl from their team who embodied PRIDE. These students will receive a special bead on their necklace!
Next, I discussed the TOS Plaques. Anyone interested in creating a design for their team plaque took a sheet of construction paper home to create their design. The design is due on Tuesday. Every design needs to have the year 2015, the team name, and the names of the students in the team. I will display each plaque and each team will vote on the plaque that they would like to have displayed outside the library.
In Science, each student was asked to compose a thank you letter to their Team Counselor and a letter to each of the cabin parents. Again, we could not have done this without you!
In Reading, the kids worked on a Me Book page journaling their ideas and thoughts about our two-day adventure.
I think these activities were a nice way to ease back in to regular classes and bring closure to our adventure!
