Hump Day

This morning, during our math block, the entire school enjoyed a fantastic assembly called Global Safari which introduced us to animals and mementos from 6 of the 7 continents. It was a treat!!

Following the assembly we proceeded with our reading block. We began reading by reviewing last night's homework and using it to help identify the simple subjects (a single noun) and the verbs. Then we spent time reviewing the format of a friendly letter and other capitalization and punctuation rules that pertain to it.

While I met with reading groups the students worked independently on a comprehension sheet for A World of Sound and wrote a than you note, for the assembly, to the PTA.

Red: We reviewed the characteristics of a 1 day old wolf pup and then continued reading to the 7 weeks entry. Tonight they need to reread from the beginning of the book through the 7 weeks entry.

Blue: We identified aspects of Clay's heritage. Then we read the section about making a pinata and began writing the directions in a clear format. Tonight they need to reread pages 1-9.

Green: We read up to page 8 using context clues to understand new vocabulary. Tonight they need to reread pages 2-8.

ALL students, in my reading class, have a 2 sided predicate worksheet to complete for homework, as well!

Following lunch and outdoor recess the students went to PE. When they return to class, we will review geographic characteristics and the elements of a map.
