After a couple of pleasantly warm, almost summer-like days, the clouds and fog hung around this morning, making it a cool day. We also did a number of interesting things today in room 19 today, so it was "cool" in that way, too.
As you can see in the picture, we went to Tech Center today. Students worked on their web pages about careers and activities related to technology. They worked really well in teams as they researched and composed their pages and embedded videos.
We also read another chapter of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Again, students took turns reading the character voices with Eli, Megan, Olivia, Sarah, and particularly Austin doing stellar jobs. In the chapter we read today, Edmund makes his way to Narnia and meets the White Witch. We did a little test prep since it's getting to that time of year, and we worked more on problem solving skills in mathematics.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words ten times each in cursive and write a sentence for each. The words are knuckles, miserable, noticed, passages, and patience. (2) Do the study guide for chapter 3 of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. (3) Do "Changing Short Vowels", "Supplying Long Vowels", and "Making Compounds" skill sheets. (4) Do “Solve a Simple Problem” on pages 372- 373 and "Test Prep" on pages 376-377 in the math book. Also do “Tournament Time” on the back.
There will be a math test tomorrow. It will also have the "second chance" for test 14. There will be a History test on Friday. The students will be receiving their study sheets for this today.
