...and we continue to march forward

Field Day? Check.
Memorial Day Weekend? Check.

While summer is just around the corner, we continue to increase our knowledge. The children had a wonderful at Field Day on Friday and they were super well behaved! :-)

This great behavior carried over to today...the children worked well this morning.

In math we continued calculating elapsed time and began using time increments to the 5 minute mark. There is a worksheet, that we began in class, for homework. WE will have a formative tomorrow and a graded quiz on Friday.

During reading we used story elements to help us write a summary. The students also worked on various reading group assignments.

JGB: reread Ugly Ducking.

W&M: Read pages 41-53 (some with me) and wrote about the evidence presented in the novel that showed Grandpa tried to protect Nam on their journey.

Shoeshine Girl: In a small group, they shared the questions they had written in their reading logs last week...great questions, I must say! Then we read the next chapter, The Shoeshine Man. The students are to reread the chapter and write a summary in their logs.

CW: Read chapters 15 and 16 with Mrs. Isaacs.

Following lunch and recess, we will read another chapter or two of Champ. Then we will begin to create our own cartoons and watch a movie about bees and pollination. We will end the day with a book exchange in the media center.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL books MUST be returned to the media center by this Friday!
