After yesterday’s adventures, today had to be a bit dull. And it was.

We began the day by clearing out and organizing portfolios. We corrected our math tests from Monday. The results are on the gradebook. We spent the time we would have normally spent on homework going over our math packets for the last four units, and those are also recorded on TeacherEase. We reviewed yesterday’s field trip and the the students made a chart of activities and new knowledge. They started to create a multi-paragraph composition about their trip.

After recess, the students went to Mr. Pratt for Social Studies. After lunch, I gave them 45 minutes to work on the field trip composition. They went to their usual mixing activities today. In math, we started on decimals today.

Homework:  (1) Write spelling words 16-20 five times each with a sentence for each one. All of this should be in cursive. (2) Do “Replacing Telling Statement” and “Inflectional Endings” on pages 203-204 of the Practice Book. (3) Do “Pronouns” on pages 213-214 of the Practice Book. (4) Do “Cloze Reading” and “Sequencing Events” worksheet. (5) Do “Decimal Place Value” pages 270-271 in the math book and “Decimal Patterns” on the back of the answer sheet. (6) Do “Adding, Subtracting Fractions 4” practice sheet.

Also, finish the composition about the field trip to the Leonis Adobe if that was not finished earlier.
