Hump Day!

Is it still considered Hump Day if it is only a 4 day week!?!?!

In math we went over the entire review packet question by question. Every student should come home with a completed and corrected packet. Use this packet and the vocabulary packet to study for the unit assessment on Friday. There is an angle worksheet for homework tonight.

In reading we reviewed affixes. I also introduced the literary web. It is a graphic organizer that serves as a tool to help students better grasp the deeper meaning in literature. We completed one together using the poem Alphabet Soup by Jack Prelutsky. This will be stored in the reading/language arts section of their binder to serve as a reference.

Following PE, lunch and indoor recess the students will continue working on their persuasive writing pieces. I will be meeting with various students to help them with elaborating on their topics. This seems to be a weakness for many. I have done a few whole group lessons. Hopefully, by meeting with small groups I will see more progress.

We will end the day by using a cup, rubber bands and straws to simulate air moving into our vocal chords and creating sound.
