End of the Semester

This week marks the last week of our second semester. We will be tying up loose ends!

In math we went over the entire review packet for unit 3. Students should be bringing home a CORRECTED packet to study tonight. We will take the unit 3 assessment, in class, tomorrow.

Prior to Winter Break I had promised the students that we would watch Cinderella on video, in conjunction with our study of folktales. Since my plans got snowed out, I had intended to watch it later in the week. However, there was a scheduling challenge with the computer lab today. So, after learning what a thesaurus is and why we would use one, we watched Cinderella.

Following lunch and outdoor recess the students will work independently on their writing pieces and completing analogies. I will meet with reading groups.

Bears: Practiced high frequency words and began a new book. For homework the students need to reread pages 2-5 two times.

Tigers: Discussed ways to choose a good book...read inside flap and discussed book. For homework they need to preview the book and list unknown words on a sticky note.

Lions: I read the Monster story out loud to the group. For homework they need to reread the story and list questions they have in their RRJ.

We will end the day by identifying the choices faced by producers and writing about them in our social studies journals.
