A Soggy Monday

This morning we concentrated on long division in math. We worked with white boards and then paper and pencil. We began working as a whole group. Then some students worked independently while I worked with a smaller group. Mrs. Starkey worked with a small group at the end of math and the beginning of reading. There is a worksheet for homework. We will begin a review packet for the Unit 5 assessment tomorrow, in class. This packet will come home either Wednesday or Thursday evening. The students are expected to use it to help prepare for the assessment which we will begin on Friday.

In reading we read and discussed an issue of Time for Kids. There will be a follow up worksheet for this issue. Please do not remove this issue from your child's binder until he/she says it is okay!

Following art, lunch and indoor recess we will work on writing realistic fiction and go to FASTT math. I plan on meeting with some reading groups at this time, too. Mouse will begin reading chapter 4. Jumanji will begin a new story from Junior Great Books called Eeyore Has a Birthday and Gets Two Presents. Onion Tears will continue reading the book with me and discuss a culminating project.

After FASTT math we will examine how geography determines where people settle. Then we will end the day with a book exchange in the media center.
