Terrific Tuesday - Practice MSA coming home!

Well....I'm back!  Surgery went VERY well and I am already moving around better than before!  YEY!

Today was a hectic day with many changes in our schedule...stay tuned!!

IMPORTANT:  Your child will be bringing home a letter about our MSA practice AND their practice tests.  PLEASE look these over.  As always, feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.

We began our day by going to an assembly called Laser Science.

After that, we returned to class and read Cynthia Rylant's book, And the Relatives Came.  After discussing the story we turned our attention to our next writing project.

Over the next 3-4 weeks, the children will be writing, illustrating and publishing a realistic fiction picture book.  I shared and explained the expectations for this project.  Then we used a Power Point presentation to discuss where authors get their ideas. 

HOMEWORK:  ALL students need to do the following assignment on Edmodo...
View the clipart.
Create a list of AT LEAST 5 possible topics based on the clip art, in their WRITING JOURNAL.
Choose their favorite and post it in the assignment prior to "turning in" the assignment on Edmodo.

In math we practiced show fractions and mixed numbers on both a number line and by drawing a picture.  Then we used pattern blocks to name a unit fraction (a whole) and determine, draw and name fractions of the whole.  There is no math homework this evening.

Following lunch and indoor recess we visited the computer lab for a lesson about family with Mrs. Howard.

When we returned to class, we spent a lot of time discussing tonight's homework.  Then we charted the fuels we know that are sued to heat and light our homes and classroom.  Tomorrow we will read about the fuels that are used for lighting and heating and add our new knowledge to our chart.  Then, individual students will identify how their learning has changed.
