Some Rain Must Fall

Here in Southern California we live in not quite a desert – it rains a couple inches a year too much for that description – but certainly an arid land. So we ought to be grateful for any precipitation we get. I just wonder why it can’t all happen after 2:30 in the afternoon. Rainy day schedules are long!

It was a pretty routine Wednesday. We started with journals. We continued by reviewing the “Mighty Jackie” story and reading about Biddie Mason. We reviewed a good deal of Science material, and we worked on division with three digit quotients. All good stuff, but nothing particularly memorable.

There really should not be much homework to do tonight despite the long list because the students were given 90 minutes at the end of the day to work on it, and many students were finished well before 2:30.

Homework:  (1) Write spelling words 11-15 ten times each and write a sentence for each one. (2) Do the spelling crossword. (3) Write a summary of the “Mighty Jackie” story and answer the questions on page 181. (4) Do “Primary Sources” and “Context Clues” on pages 87-88 of the Practice book. (5) Answer the science study questions. (6) Do the multiplication practice paper.  (7) Do pages 172-173 in the math book.
