Happy Friday!

Definitely a double meaning...I am happy that the weekend is here but I am also happy with the work the children did it is just a HAPPY day! :-)

During math, the children took a quiz. They are graded and will come home today. PLEASE review it with your child. On Monday we will do a review packet and prepare for the unit assessment which will take place on Tuesday.

In reading we read and discussed Time for Kids. The cover story was about John F. Kennedy. We began to complete a graphic organizer to capture the "big ideas" from the article. Unfortunately, we ran out of time. Next week we will complete the graphic organizer and use it to write a summary.

Following music, lunch and recess we had writing.

During writing we had a little "discussion" about making good use of their time. The talk seemed to inspire our young writers, as many were able to choose a topic, create a web and begin a piece in which they were writing to inform.

Then we watched a video on United Streaming to show the children how cities changed as technology progressed.
