Most of our morning was devoted to taking the district-mandated Quarter Two math test. It went quite well, in part because I forced the students to go at my pace through the questions and we read each one aloud. If only I could do that on the CST in May....
Thursday is our usual Art day, and we did some desert scenes today. We'll be doing some writing inspired by this tomorrow.
We also went out and played some kickball with room 7 today since we'll probably miss PE with the rain tomorrow. We started decimals in math. This is a hard concept for the students at first, so please review their homework here.
Homework: (1) Do spelling words ten times each plus one sentence. The words are courage, muscles, customers, ammonia, and pneumonia. (2) Do "Decimal Place Value" pages 270-271 in the math book.
