We started off the day, as we usually do on Tuesdays, in the Tech Center. Some of the students are finishing up their Survey Reports – and these are pretty impressive, if I do say so myself, and others are working on their reports about a famous African American.
After the computer lab, the students went to the auditorium where Mr. Lawton had them working to set a tune to the poems they had written previously. They had a lot of fun sounding out melodies on the xylophones.
The rest of the day was a bit more prosaic. We corrected our homework, reviewed for the math test, and then took the test. It has been corrected and will be on the grade book soon.
We finished reading last week’s story from the Treasures book. We did another lesson from our Hands-on Equations program.
