Today was the State Writing Test for fourth grade. This is the first part of our CST testing sequence. The reading and math tests will come as usual in May. This took up most of the morning before recess.
We also checked homework, corrected yesterday's math tests, and talked about rounding decimals. We had the extra hour today, so we did some more play practice.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 6 - 10 ten times each and cursive and write one sentence for each. The words are becalmed, tarry, yard, languish, and exotic. (2) Do "Rounding Decimals," pages 292-294 in the math book, and also do "More than One Way" on the back of the answer sheet.
