We started reading "Shadow of a Bull" in the reader today. This is an excerpt from the Newberry-award winning book of the same name. It's not a completely easy story for the children to get because the social world of Franco-era Spain is pretty distant from that of contemporary Los Angeles, but they certainly enjoy the blood and guts that accompany bullfighting.
We also went to the auditorium again for more play practice. After lunch, we checked last Friday's reading quiz. We went to PE. In math we're doing subtracting fractions with unlike denominators.
A few kids brought Valentine's Day stuff, so we passed that out at the very end of the day.
Homework: (1) Do spelling words 1-5. Write each word ten times each in cursive and write one sentence for each word in cursive. (2) Do "Subtracting Fractions" on pages 258-259 in the math book. Also do the "Fraction Action" on the back of the answer sheet.
