Cats and Dogs

Friday’s field trip went swimmingly, and pictures from that adventure will be coming shortly.

It was a pretty quiet day after all the hurry and scurry of Friday, but a good day nevertheless. The students began by pondering in their journals what it would be like if it one day literally “rained cats and dogs.” We corrected last week’s reading quiz and we took the spelling test we missed on Friday. The results of both are on the gradebook. We went over this week’s vocabulary and spelling.

In math, we’re continuing our work on multiplying by two digits. And in Science, we’re getting ready for the Periodic Assessment in that subject.

Parent conferences are ongoing this week, so there will be no afterschool homework club this week or next. I will resume again after Thanksgiving Break.

Homework:  (1) Write all spelling words 2 times in cursive. Write sentences for words 1-5. (2) Do “Suffixes”, on page 119 and “Vocabulary" on page 120 of the Practice Book. (3) Do the “Two Times Two 1” worksheet. (4) Do “Greater Numbers” on page 148-149 of the math book and “Playing with Numbers" on the back of the answer sheet.
