With our dance-a-thon today, I couldn't think of a better title for today's post.  Howard B. Wigglebottom is a picture book character that my own children are very fond of.  His books talk about how to deal with some of the problems that kids have while they are growing up.  They are a great character education resource.  The link below will take you to the site, and while the online story books are fantastic, there is a lot more to see.  The songs are very catchy and free to download.  As well, there are games, colouring sheets, and more.  The polar vortex is back, so take some time to have a look!

Today in math, we built nets of 3-D shapes.  Tomorrow (Friday) we are having an assessment and getting ready to move on to our next topic.  Students can use the websites I have posted over the past couple of weeks to review.  Under the Sea is a great site for math practice.  Click the link below, input a good fishy name, and on the right hand side of the screen you will see "3-D Objects and 2D shapes".  Send your fish to that, then go to the 3-D section.  .

Tomorrow is Zumba, Red and White Day, and don't forget that Monday is Family Day. 

Have a good  night!
