We would like to welcome Ms. Chapman to our classroom. She is a university student from UofL. Ms. Chapman will be spending a month learning right beside us.

Here is a visual:
If you would like to practice the regrouping process this link can help with that:
Students continued to learn about light and shadows in our world. We had a discussion about phases of the moon and how they are created by different shadow angles.
Students can start searching their homes and environments for sources of direct light and also reflections of light. We will be focusing on these areas next week and understanding the differences.
