Tuesday--I'm Back!

As I mentioned in Friday's post, I was out of the building, yesterday, at curriculum training.

We began the day by reviewing similes and adverbs. These were both skills that the children reviewed and practiced with the substitute but looking over their independent work, I decided I needed to clarify a few things.

After that, we discussed the characteristics of fantasy. Then we read the book Big, Bad Bruce and examples from the story which make it a fantasy.

In math we continued identifying unknown pieces of equations. Today these included numbers in some equations and operational signs in others. For homework, some children need to finish or redo sections of their classwork. All students have a multiplication worksheet.

Following PE, lunch and outdoor recess the students worked on poems for Mrs. McAlister and Mrs. Watkins.  We will give them these poems tomorrow in honor of National Administrative Assistant's Day.

Bears:  We reread and discussed chapter 2.

Lions:  We reread and discussed chapter 13.

Crabs:  We reread and discussed chapter 2.  The students need to work on their reading fluency.  For HOMEWORK they need to read chapter 2 and get a parent signature in their binder.

Reading class ran long and we did not get to science.
