It was a most productive day. We read another chapter of By the Great Horn Spoon! and we discussed it. We also wrote a short essay about the pictures that the students worked on last week. I have never had students actually write a composition about how they did their art before, but it was a surprisingly good way to force them to be aware of the techniques that we were using, and those that they could have used. I'll have some examples of this on the blog as soon as I can.
After recess, we went to the auditorium for some more play practice. They are getting really good at both acting and singing! The afternoon was devoted to Physical Education and Math. In Math, we are learning to multiply numbers with decimals. It's a pretty easy skill, particularly today's assignment.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 1-5 ten times each and write a sentence. The words are invasion, glum, lumber, morsel, and junk. (2) Do the Great Horn Spoon chapter 7 study sheet. (3) Do the "Latitude and Longitude" and "Butler" worksheets. Some of the maps did not photocopy that well, but do your best with it. (4) Do "Multiplying and Dividing Fractions" on pages 307-308 of the math book.
Also, be sure that the writing and art is finished. And, finally, make sure that the homework Mr. Lawton assigned for Music two weeks ago is finished.
