Once More

Today we spent much of the day working on the second rough draft of our newspaper story about the "Sewed Up His Heart!" story. It's not easy as a teacher to admit that your directions were not that good when you first gave the assignment, but the students did so poorly on it that I had to figure out that I needed to go over what I wanted more carefully. So we divided the story into sections and we reviewed it and made notes together for this. We will do the final draft tomorrow combining it with an art project.

We did some other things. We reviewed finding common denominators as we corrected Friday's homework. We rehearsed a bit more for the play. We worked with foot dribbling in PE. And we talked about ordering fractions as part of today's math.

Homework:  (1) Do spelling words 1-5. Write each word ten times each in cursive and write a sentence for each one. (2) Do Word Knowledge and Vocabulary for the "Susan La Flesche Picotte" story. Ignore the printed directions and use a dictionary or glossary for the definitions. (3) Do "Ordering Fractions" pages 240-241 in the math book.

Also, be sure that your homework for Mr. Lawton is done.
