On the Number Line

Wednesdays usually pass by quite quickly and pleasantly, and this one was no exception. We began by checking, correcting, and discussing our homework, as usual. We then went on to reading the second chapter of By the Great Horn Spoon! We went to Tech Center. After recess, the students went to Mr. Pratt for history where they are learning about the Mexican War. We had PE after lunch as we usually do. With me, the students are practicing foot dribbling, a soccer skill. In math we're connecting fractions and decimals to number lines. This is one of those frustrating activities which never adults are never asked to do with numbers, but it is a designated standard and it's going to be tested so we do our best to teach and learn it.
Homework:  (1) Do spelling words 8-14. Write each word 10 times in cursive and write one sentence in cursive for each word. The words are dispirited, lurch, baffled, fierce, molting, penetrate, and despicable. (2) Do the chapter two study sheet for By the Great Horn Spoon! Be sure to answer in complete sentences and use a dictionary as needed to help with vocabulary. (3) Do "Fractions and Decimals on a Number Line" pages 278-280 in the math text. Also do "A New Measure" on the back of the answer sheet.
