Wow! It's like summer today! And, isn't it great that there's a three day weekend, too?Happy Cesar Chavez Day!
Today was a routine Friday kind of day, except it was on a Thursday. We checked, corrected, and discussed homework. We took our reading and spelling tests. All of these are graded and the results are on the gradebook. After recess, we went to the auditorium where we had our first complete beginning to end run through of Oliver! It's going to be fantastic, and we'll keep all the families posted about ways you can help with the show later.
After lunch,we finished watching the Gold Rush film. The students also studied how to break L-shaped figures into two or more smaller rectangles to figure out that area.
Homework: (1) Do "Area of Irregular Shapes" pages 365-366 in the math book. (2) Do "More Division Practice" and "Adding and Subtracting Fractions" worksheets.
If any parents would like to accompany us on Monday's field trip to LACMA, please let me know right away. We can use volunteers to walk with us and also one or two to drive the lunches over to the park and meet us there at eleven o'clock.
