Field Trip Tomorrow!!!

Tomorrow is our walking field trip of Damascus. PLEASE make sure your child gets a good night's sleep, eats a big breakfast AND wears comfortable shoes...preferably sneakers! If you volunteered to chaperone, please arrive at school at 9:15.

In math today we calculated the perimeter of shapes. There is a worksheet for homework.

Following math we identified important information in a nonfiction book in preparation to identify the main idea. Then we went to the media center to learn about the author Mike Knudson. He will be visiting our school on November 18. WE began reading one of his books and then visited his web site on the Internet.

Following lunch and recess we will practice writing "thick" questions (questions that require more then a yes/no answer) for one of our topics on our writing to inform list. If time permits, we will begin writing a rough draft for this topic answering some of our questions.

We will end the day with a friendship lesson conducted by Mrs. Howard.
