We spent a great deal of time, in math, reviewing last night's homework. Hopefully, students have a better concept of the idea of solving for unknown variables in equations. Luckily this is a fourth grade objective. SO, the children will get more extensive instruction with this next year.

After that we began working on a review packet for the unit 3 assessment. We will be taking the assessment on Wednesday. You can expect a completed review packet to come home Tuesday. Tonight there is a basic fact worksheet for homework.

We began reading by reviewing the characteristics of a summary. Then the students filled out story map in their RRJ's as I read the folktale, Abiyoyo. After discussing the story map the students wrote summaries, independently. I continued conferencing with students on their writing.

Following music, lunch and outdoor recess, the students will work on their writing, their summaries and other assignments from ealier in the week.

I was planning to meet with reading groups but instead spent time conferencing with students to improve their writing. THe only group I met with wwas the bears group...they worked on high frequency words and rereading their book. The tiger group met with Mrs. Hepner, as they do everyday (prior to meeting with me).

We ended the day by finishing a lesson on respect and beginning a friendship lesson with Mrs. Howard.
