This morning, in math, we continued to calculate the perimeter of shapes and began identifying the area. I met with two small groups while the rest of the class worked independently. One group worked on calculating the conversion of linear measurements. The other practiced finding the perimeter of figures. There is a perimeter worksheet for homework. We will have a quiz on Friday.

We began reading by reviewing nouns and plural nouns. Then I used the hamburger model from an earlier lesson to explain the organization of a paragraph. After that, I used my graphic organizer to model writing a two paragraph informational paragraph.

The children's independent work included locating 10 plural nouns in text and writing them on sticky notes. Additionally, they worked on writing a multi paragraphed informational piece using their graphic organizer. Finally, they practiced writing capital U, V and Y in cursive.

I met with all three reading groups today, BRIEFLY. The children had their pictures taken during reading which cut into our small group time! Each group reviewed their homework from last night.

There is NO reading group homework this evening and we still have not gotten to our new spelling packet....hopefully, tomorrow!!

Following lunch and recess, we went to the computer lab to practice keyboarding skills using Type to Learn. When we return to the classroom we will watch a short video clip on the production of jeans and complete a follow up worksheet.

Remember that Thursday and Friday are early dismissal days. Also book orders are due no later than Friday.
