March Madness Sweet 16 2020

Were you able to predict a perfect bracket? You had to pick from sixteen books but the odds of picking a perfect bracket with sixty-four teams…The Odds of a Perfect NCAA Bracket.
NCAA Basketball teams are down to the Sweet 16 along with our Tournament of Books.

This week teams will be battling for the Elite Eight, and you need to select a book to move on as well. You only get to vote once and all voting must be completed by 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1st.

Reading Status of the Class

Let’s try a new way of updating our reading status, so we do not lose our momentum. Click the square with the arrow inside it in the upper right-hand corner of this post to link to the Padlet wall. Please visit a few times a week and share what you are reading. Maybe your post will inspire someone else to read the book. There is a link in the first comment on how to use Padlet. Watch that video first.

Whatcha Doin’?

Hey, everyone! I miss you all. I am so curious as to what you have been up to. We are trying to keep busy here at my house. I thought I would share what we have been up to and you could do the same. (I am working on making it so we can share a photos soon.) For now, check out the link below in the comment section to the Google slide I made. Add a slide to the presentation. Then come back here and share a positive comment.

Start With Hello

This week we will celebrate “Start with Hello” week, which is a week to remind us how important and powerful it is to get to know one another, make new friends, say hi to new people, and make people feel good if they are feeling sad or alone. Every day you can do a special activity to remember to try and include others. Whether on the school bus, in the playground or in class, it is important to make sure others feel included and welcome.

Sometimes to do this, you need courage. Courage can mean a lot of things and people can act courageously in a lot of different situations. Listen to Bernard Waber’s book, Courage. Think about what courage means to you and how you too can act courageously in every day kind of ways.

Courage is also staring with Hello! Let’s try to be courageous by getting to know new people and by helping others who might need a friend.
