Yet More Growth

Sorry this one is a little late being posted. The district’s security measures are making it very difficult to connect with https: websites like blogger. It took me a while to find a workaround.

As you can see from the picture below, our students were thrilled to discover how much their plants had grown over the weekend. It was the first thing that grabbed their attention when they came in the door. They could barely wait until it was science time to do their measuring.

We did some other things, too. We studied subject and predicate. We learned the vocabulary for this week’s story, “Ali Baba Bernstein.” The students were introduced to California history with Mr. Pratt. We read a part of a chapter from Island of the Blue Dolphins. In math, we’re slogging through rounding and estimation.

Homework: (1) Do “Rounding Whole Numbers,” pages 26-27 in the math book. (2) Sort the spelling words into groups depending on how they make the long a sound. Some words will not fall into any category because they are vocabulary term. (3) Do the “Subtraction with Regrouping 1” worksheet. (4) Do “Rounding Around” on the back of the math answer sheet.
