Molly Malone (and other songs)

We started another new program today, music class with Mr. Lawton.


In third grade, he taught recorders to the students (one of many, many reasons I don't teach third grade), but in fourth grade we are focusing on song writing. The students have an assignment to write lyrics to a song tonight as part of their homework. Mr. Lawton and the class, with a bit of help from yours truly, came up with a sample lyric (sung to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star":

Zombies like to eat brain cake,
But it's something you can't bake.
You can find it on the street,
Grab a child and start to eat!

Gruesome, yes, but welcome to fourth grade!

We also had Tech Center where the students either finished their PowerPoints or did some geometry games on the computer.

Homework:  (1) Write all spelling words 3 times in cursive and write sentences for words 6-10. (2) Do "Maps," page 160 and "Antonyms" page 161in the Practice book. (3) Do the "Factors 2" math worksheet.
