Another quiet day in room 19, our hometown….
We started with journal writing. The prompt today was “You have been abducted by aliens. Explain how this happened.” They like that a lot! We went to the library where Mrs. Koneff explained the new “Dewey Dollars” reading contest. We took our spelling test and checked, corrected, and discussed homework. We talked about the Bear Flag revolt and read a chapter in the history book. We read a section in the Science book about freshwater environment. This ties into our work with the aquariums. We practice Charlie Brown and we went out to PE. In math, we are continuing our look at solid figures in Geometry.
A big thank you to all the families who have contributed towards the cost of the CDI program. Our classroom participation is about 60 percent right now. We would like to get at least a little something from each family here, so if you have not yet contributed please send in a check (or cash if you wish in a sealed envelope with your name on it) as soon as possible.
Homework: (1) Do the “Bear Flag Revolt” study sheet. (2) “Do the “Freshwater Environments” study sheet. (3) Do “Views,” Envision Math, pages 212-213 and “Building Blocks” on the back of the answer sheet. (4) Do the “Multiplication Fiends” worksheet and “Factors”. The factoring exercise was hard for the students yesterday, so we are having some more practice here. We discussed it at length, but parents could help by double checking this one.
