We began a new unit on Space (Soaring Through Space). Today we first brainstormed what we already know about space and the students each drew a picture of what they thought how space looked like (pre-assessment). We ended watching a video that taught the students about the planets.
The students were engaged in Literacy Centers today.
The students were focused with a Date Management pre-test today.
