Hump Day!!

In math we continued working with polygons and solid figures. There is a worksheet for homework and some children need to finish their classwork.

In reading we discussed similes as another type of figurative language. Similes are comparisons of two or more things, which you would normally not think of as similar, using the words "like" or "as". We identified a simile in the poem , "Spring is..."

Then the students worked independently on reading group assignments, cursive writing and persuasive writing.

Following PE, lunch and recess, the students will continue working independently, go to FASTT math and meet in small groups with me.

Ooka: WE met and had our final discussion about whether or not it was okay for Gonta to steal the rice. The group will complete a concept map (vocab) on one of the following words; courtesy, virtue or sufficient. They will also finalize their written response to our focus question.

Lion: Will complete a concept map (vocab) on either splendid or noble. We will also meet to discuss the focus question.

Two Families: They were to reread independently and mark the main events in the beginning, middle and end of the book. We will meet to discuss the summary. They will then write a summary of the story in their RRJ.

WE will end the day with a science lesson. They will add more strings to their instrument which they constructed yesterday. There will also be a BCR for them to answer...this might become homework...

PLEASE make sure you check your child's planner each night...sometimes there is homework that is not posted on here!

Also, we are in need of pencils, erasers, 100 page composition books, sharpeners, etc. Please ask your child what he/she needs.

Each child needs to bring in a decorated box or paper bag to collect their valentines on Friday.
