A Giant Monday

Couldn't help borrowing from the ingenious press headlines...

In math we constructed more solid figures and identified the number of faces, edges and verticies of each. There is a worksheet for homework...and on page 133 in your child's planner there is some information about solids that you might find helpful!

In reading we read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day...another of my favorites. We discussed mood and point of view using this book. The entire class had a follow up worksheet reagarding our discussions. I left our notes on the board for them to use as they completed their responses. Unfortunately, many of the papers were not "up to par". PLEASE remember that students are encouraged to redo work to improve both their understanding and their grade!

Following art, lunch and outdoor recess, we continued working on independent work (from above) while I met with new reading groups.

The JGB group did a text opener in which we discussed fears wwe might have if we wre to travel on a train for a long distance by ourselves. This will prepare us for the story we will read tomorrow.

The Willima and Mary (WM) group met with me and I shared a very brief overview of the prgram. Then they did a preassessment. They read a short piece of text and responded to a few questions. We will use this to show growth at the end of the program.

Finally, I met with my novel group. They are reading Sarah PLain and Tall a historical fiction novel. Tonight they need to reread chapter one. Tomorrow we will discuss the mood and point of view of this chapter.

We ended the day with a trip to the media center for a book exchange.
