In math we practiced identifying slides, flips and turns. We also used symmetry to complete pictures. For homework there is a Geometry Riddle worksheet to help the children practice the vocabulary that is prevalent in this unit. There will be a quiz on Friday!

We began reading by revisiting June 29, 1999. Today our focus was identifying examples of personification. Personification is another type of figurative language where inanimate objects are given human characteristics.

Then the students worked independently on reading group assignments, searching for -augh words and cursive handwriting, while I met with small groups.

My Two Families: Read the new book and marked any unknown words on a sticky note. Reread in group and answered the question, "What made Alex change her mind?" in their RRJ.

Lion and Mouse: Reread story and listed questions they wonered about. We made a group list, too.

Ooka: Continued sharing places marked as U or UF. Then answered the focus question independently, in preparation for reading group tomorrow.

Following lunch and recess we will continue working on the assignments from this morning and writing persuasive writing pieces. Then we will make multi string instruments and identify ways we can change the pitch.

Please check planners for additional homework assignments!
