Your focus should still be on your “letter to yourself at graduation.” Given that only 18 students completed their bird essays, that many of you won’t complete this simple task and will be terribly disappointed in June of 2027! Let’s hope I’m wrong! If you scroll down today you’ll see posts about current graduates. I encourage you to read and explore those posts. That’ll be you some day! What do you have to do to be one of those award winners in high school? If you’d like to join me in honoring our high school graduates, come down and line the streets around CPE by 6:30. There’s gonna be a parade!
More long division practice in math. That’s what it takes…practice! Please please please watch the video! Then do Worksheet E for classwork and Worksheet F for homework. If you’re just using a calculator, you’re cheating. Any doofus can punch numbers into a calculator. You’re better than that!
Did you know Silly Putty was invented because of World War 2? When you read today’s history lesson, you’ll here about a couple other odd results of the war. You also have your reading and PE log, another segment of Outdoor Dude, and a short reading assignment about the history of the television. Funny, when I was in first grade, I used to watch Gilligan’s Island on the little black and white television in our kitchen. One day the show started with the message, “Now in Living Color!” I was so excited. I was going to get to see Gilligan’s Island in color. But you know what? It stayed black and white. What the heck! Such is the way a first grader’s brain works… or maybe just mine at the time. Had I gone into the living room, I could have seen it in color, but our kitchen TV was B&W no matter what. Interesting, though, that I was around when color TV finally became the norm.
Have a great day!
