Lennie had a great week visiting Ms. Blackwood and Ms. Miller's fourth grade class! He joined students for morning meeting on Zoom, worked on some multi-step word problems in math, and worked on the iReady reading diagnostic. He also got to start a personal narrative story and learn about character change. His favorite activity was playing math Jeopardy to review place value skills.
