Our first Saturday back after the March Break began with some team-building activities! By team-building we mean: a high-intensity dodge ball match between the girls and boys! The first match started with Daveenah, Tatyanna, and Chelsea going up against the very strong team of Ayden, Joseph, Logan, and Emmanuel. Already outnumbered, the girls proved to be no match for the boys! However, a few minutes into the second round, late-comer Makayla jumped in and saved the day! The girls took down the boys with ease.
In the afternoon, we finished up our Lego Kits that we had started before March Break. Joseph designed an action figure, Logan designed the city of Los Angeles, Emmanuel created a kit that featured himself (naturally!), and Tatyanna came up with an impressive peach tree design complete with a car that could hold all of the peaches!
Many of our kids have gained enough points for the “small prize” option in Class Dojo (small prizes include pencils, erasers, a pencil crayon set). They can choose to trade in their points for a small prize, or keep going for their chance at a medium or large prize.
