On Monday, the first of our book groups presented to the class, telling us a bit about the characters and themes of Mockingbird, the book they had read.
Later in the day, Gabe and David gave a presentation teaching us about tiling and tessellation, which included a group activity designed to illustrate what shapes are able to tessellate. (It's difficult to photograph a slideshow in low light, so please know that David is actually pointing out a detail of a tiling, as opposed to just a blob of white light.)
In Math today, what was meant as a warm-up exercise wound up taking over much of the morning, as kids worked together (using manipulatives, drawings, paper, and white boards) to solve a logic puzzle involving checkers on a board.
Today was also one of our days for PE, so after working through the morning, they were ready to run off some energy in the afternoon.
