Hump Day

Wow! We accomplished a lot in math today! We worked on the multiplication packet. In fact, it will come home tonight since Exercise F, the final page in the packet, has been assigned as homework. We will review the correct answers, in class, tomorrow and then the packet will come home for good!

After working multiplication strategies, we worked on the review packet for Unit 5. I worked with a small group while most worked independently. Tomorrow we will review each problem and spend time clearing up any confusion.

During reading, the children continued working on the Comics in the Classroom lesson from yesterday and reading group assignments from Monday. I met with Charlotte's Web and began reading chapter 5. They finished reading this chapter with partners. I also met with JGB and we began a text opener for their next story.

Following PE, lunch and recess, the children cross pollinated their plants using their bee sticks. Then we read and discussed an issue of Time for Kids. The children have been assigned a follow up worksheet for homework.

We ended the day by reviewing the various formats of poetry we have learned and writing a poem that will be part of a special project.
