Hump Day

In math we took a formative. There were a number of problems on the formative that had not been directly taught in class. I wanted to see how well the children could apply their knowledge in new situations. Overall, I learned that the class needs work on balancing equations. So, please, do not be alarmed if your child did poorly on that page. We will be working on that skill in class.

For homework students need to review their formative with an adult and complete a money worksheet.

During reading, the students worked on specific assignments for their individual groups.

W&M: Finally received their own copies of Journey. They reread chapters 1 & 2. I had assigned a BCR but it addressed a quote in chapter 3. (OOPS!) So, instead of answering the BCR, they read chapter 3.

Flat Stanley: Reread chapter 1 and responded to two assignments int heir reading logs. First they had to draw pictures of the beginning, middle and end of the chapter. Next, they had to explain (in writing) how Stanley "got flat".

Charlotte's Web: Met with me and read chapter 1.

JGB: Worked with Mrs. Benson. They will begin their new story tomorrow.

Following PE, lunch and recess, I will read a chapter of Matilda out loud. Then we will examine the structure of poetry...lines, stanzas, usage of space, etc. Finally, we will read The House on Maple Street and identify natural and human made features in the story.
