I had a SUPER weekend...who could ask for more? We had beautiful weather, fun at the Octoberfest and the Redskins won, again, on the road!!!
Now that we have concluded our fabulous study of Cynthia Rylant, with Mrs. Rose, we are back to a semi-normal schedule...whatever that means!?!?!
In math we reviewed addition and subtraction with regrouping. We also constructed bar graphs (independently) when given specific data. Students had to analyze the data and determine a consistent scale to use. Many were successful independently!! There is a worksheet for homework.
After math, we got our pictures taken...then we read the morning message. We also read The Surprise Garden and listened for words with the /er/ SOUND. Students will collect more words with the /er/ sound and we will sort them according to the spelling of the /er/ sound. This will be our next spelling focus.
Following art, lunch and recess, Mrs. Howard will stop by to discuss the Homeless Walk. Then the children will work independently, while I meet with reading groups.
JGB: complete the interpreting words activity, search for 10 /er/ words, revise a personal narrative for a score (and feedback, of course)
Frogs: read chapter 3, list unknown words, search for 10 /er/ words, revise a personal narrative for a score
Dragons: preview chapter 1 of a new book, list unknown words, search for 10 /er/ words, revise a personal narrative for a score
We will end the day with a book exchange in the media center!
A note about the book report...the SIGNED book choice form was due back TODAY! I received LESS than half of the classes...kind of disappointing. Students need to select a realistic fiction novel and begin reading... The entire assignment is due October 29!!
