This morning in reading we read the story Adelita, a Mexican version of Cinderella written by Tomie Depaola. After reading the story we discussed the elements and the theme and added it to our Cinderella comparison chart. Then the students had a chance to finish any unfinished work from the week.

In math we had our first quiz for unit 3. This quiz will be scored and returned to students today. Look for it in the math section of your child's binder.

Following a visit tot he media center, lunch and outdoor recess, we discussed the use of feedback in writing a final draft. Then the students continued to complete unfinished assignments while I met with reading groups.

Lions: We finished identifying the meaning of unknown words in the fable The Dancing Monkeys. Then we discussed the fable and the moral.

Bears: We read The Wolf and the Kid and discussed the moral.

Crabs: We read The Baboon's Umbrella and practiced breaking down large words (ex. predicament) and the moral.

We ended the day with a fire drill and by discussing ideas for a SMALL holiday project for next week...details to come on Monday!
