As usual, we had a great day. We checked, corrected, and discussed our homework. We read another chapter of A Wrinkle in Time. We worked with room 7 on the really hard part of "Who Will Buy?" where four independent parts are singing simultaneously. Many high school choruses would have problem with this, but our students are making astounding progress.
After recess, the students went to room 7 and I worked with those fourth graders on Science. After lunch, we worked on peer revisions and edits to our tree house stories and we studied some more things with probability.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 1-5 ten times each. Write one sentence for each word. The sentence must accurately reflect the meaning of the word. Students may need to use a dictionary here for help. The words are disillusion, dispersed, essence, exclusive, and ferocious. (2) Do “Outcomes and Tree Diagrams,” pages 454-455 in the math book. Also do “Triangle Shapes” on the back of the answer sheet. (3) Do the Wrinkle in Time study sheet. (4) Finish the final draft of the tree house composition.
