Book and Music

This Friday, like most, was an opportunity for the students to show how much they learned this week. Our first half hour of the day gave the students a chance to pick their favorite journal assignment of the week and to revise and edit it into a final product. I will have the weekend to enjoy these.

After that, we went to the library. As always, Mrs. Denson was not only sweet to the children, but she also was so impressed with their good library manners that she gave each one of them a sweet when they checked their books out!


After this, week took our reading, spelling, and math tests. These were generally quite good and the results are on the grade book.

In the afternoon, we had a chance to see the Dosan Philharmonic, a semi-professional orchestra composed mostly of Korean-Americans in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Here is Dr. Oh introducing them.


They played a light pops concert with selections from Cats, The Wizard of Oz, Cinema Paraiso, Tango Argentino, and a rousing rendition of “You Raise Me Up.”

Homework:  Do pages 162-163 in the math book.

I did not have a chance to run off the report cards this week, but be sure to check the grade book to see any changes. You will receive a report card next Friday.
