Fall Forward

Almost every year the day after time changes some poor child comes in an hour early or an hour late. My congratulations – everybody in room 19 was here on time today!

Pretty ordinary Monday. We worked in our journals on writing narrative fluently, and we began to look at subject and object pronouns. We read “Name that Reptile” and talked about both the vocabulary words and making inferences. We are doing a descriptive writing project this week inspired by the classic picture book All the Places to Love by Patricia McLaughlin. Today students listened to the book and brainstormed by making a cluster. Here’s an illustration from the book.


Students went to Mr. Pratt for history. We also started a special Thanksgiving Art project today. More on that later….

Homework:  (1) Write all spelling words 2 times in cursive. Write sentences for words 1-5. (2) Do “Phonics” on page 131, “Vocabulary" on page 132, and “Inferences” on page 133 of the Practice Book. (3) Do the “Three Times Two 1” worksheet. (4) Do “Remainders” on page 162-163 of the math book and “Order Lunch" on the back of the answer sheet.
