This morning in math we took our first quiz for unit 4. Overall, the students did very well! The quizzes have been scored and should be in your child's the math section. Look for it! After the quiz, we spent time identifying the flat shapes that make up solid figures. For example, a cylinder is constructed of 2 circles and a rectangle.

We began reading with a spelling test. After that we discussed the role figurative language has on the mood of text. While I met with reading groups the students completed their persuasive paragraphs and read a poem and answered comprehension questions that went with it. After that, they completed any unfinished work.

Reading Groups:
Hyenas: Discussed who was the boy on the street.

Snow Tigers: Discussed what Ben and Gully have in common.

Hornets: Identified where Sarah went during the storm.

Following lunch and recess the students will go to music.

When they return, the will be working with a substitute. They will be identifying natural and man-made changes in the book The Little House and naming the WANT that these changes meet.

Remember that Monday is Valentine's Day. We will be celebrating from 2:30-3:15.
