You have to learn to be flexible in fourth grade. Things just happen and you adjust to it. Our rain – such as it was, at least so far – was one of those things. Mr. Lawton getting laryngitis and cancelling class was another. You adjust and find something else to do.
We mostly reviewed for the math test, took the math test, and read and discussed our Treasures selection for the week. It’s an interesting informational article about ants. Our new reading series is quite heavy on nonfiction reading. That helps prepare the students more for middle school, I suppose. Fortunately, most of the selections are pretty good.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 6-10 five times each. Write one sentence for each word. (2) Do the spelling jumble. (3) Do “Matching Antonyms” and “Determining Feelings” worksheet. (4) Do the “Adding, Subtracting Fractions 2 worksheet”.
Also, students need to be sure that they are finished with the final draft of the animals/teamwork story. We started on this draft on Monday and they also had ample time to work on it today in class.
