Half Way Point of MP3

This week is the mid point of the third marking period. Interim reports will be coming home in your child's home folder this afternoon.

In math we began unit 5. We reviewed fractions of a figure and of a set. There is a worksheet for homework.

In reading the small groups from Friday shared their change posters (charts). We made some generalizations from these charts, such as, change is everywhere, change can be positive or negative, change can be fair or unfair, etc.

Then we began discussing the literary genre of historical fiction and began reading Mr. Lincoln's Whiskers.

Prior to art, the children attended the fifth grade performance from their work with the BSO. Following lunch and indoor recess, they will go to FASTT math and work on independent work (cursive and persuasive writing) when not working on reading group activities.

W&M: Will read about a biography about Patricia MacLachlan, the author of Journey, a novel they will begin this week.

Second Chance: Will finish reading the story with me and write a summary in their RRJ.

Myron: Will reread the story with directed notes. They will mark places with a G where Myron was a good class president. They will mark places with a B where he was a bad class president. This will prepare them for our discussion.

We will end the day with a book exchange in the media center.
