Marvelous Monday!

What a wonderful spring day!

In math we worked on a packet that taught the children "tips" for multiplying numbers. We will complete the packet tomorrow. Look for it in your child's home folder tomorrow evening and be sure to go over it with your child. It is very important that children memorize all of the basic math facts. There is a money worksheet for homework. Additionally, our unit assessment is scheduled for NEXT Tuesday, May 13.

During reading the children worked on reading group assignments.
Flat Stanley: Reread chapter 3 and drew a picture of the beginning, middle and end of the chapter. They used their pictures to write a summary.

Charlotte's Web: Reread chapter 4 and wrote a letter to Wilbur, in their reading response log, giving him suggestions that might help his loneliness. They also met with me to read and discuss this chapter.

JGB: Continued working on their packet for OOKA. Today their focus should have been answering interpretive questions.

W&M: Reread chapter 7 and wrote about why Journey NEEDS the cat. We met in group and discussed this, as well...GREAT discussion.

Following art, lunch and recess, we will make bee sticks to aid the pollination process for our plants. Then we will write letters of appreciation for Mrs. Starkey.
