Back to a five day week...

It has been a while since we have had a 5 day school week. It will be nice to get back into a routine!

In math we began reviewing for the unit 1 assessment. The children worked independently on a review packet. Tomorrow we will go over the review packet as a whole group. Students will be encouraged to ask questions and expected to correct any and all mistakes. Look for an accurately completed review packet to come home tomorrow. Use this to prepare for the assessment on Thursday.

While the children worked, I met with small groups of students to work on isolated skills. I had began the period by passing out an index card to each student and making a list of all topics that will be covered on the assessment. The students then wrote down one or two topics that they wanted extra help with...I formed groups from these cards based on the children's feedback. Mrs. Starkey worked with some small groups, too!

There is a math worksheet for homework.

In reading we discussed parts of speech, in general. Then we got more specific as we discussed plural nouns. I read the story Where the River Begins and we identified plural nouns with in the book.

Following art, lunch and recess we will review rules capitalization and continue writing personal narratives. We will end the day with a book exchange in the media center.

PLEASE make sure that your child is working on the book report. It is due in 9 days!!!
