A sunny beginning to a new week...yey!

In math we began exploring how to add and subtract fractions. Remember that the denominators must be the same and that they do not change. You only need to add (or subtract) the numerator. I worked with a few students on their computation of money. There is a worksheet for homework.

During our reading block we review the format for writing cinquain poems. They are poems containing five lines with a specific syllable pattern.
Line 1: 2 syllables (topic)
Line 2: 4 syllables (describe topic)
Line 3: 6 syllables (action of topic)
Line 4: 8 syllables (feeling about topic)
Line 5: 2 syllables (rename topic)

Following art, lunch and recess the children continued writing realistic fiction and went to FASTT math. Then we continued working on the time lines from The House on Maple Street. FInally, we will go to the medai center for a book exchange.
