I had to leave early yesterday to sign some important papers, so I did not get a chance to update everybody about our activities here in room 19. So today we will begin with what we did yesterday.
We started with our journals, of course. Monday we were writing stories about someone who did something unexpected, something that other people never thought that person could do. That assignment was not altogether easy for the students, but it helped get their minds ready for reading the main Treasures selection for the week about Jackie, the strike-out queen.
We went to music, and, as usual, Ms. Moran was fantastic. Students continued to develop both rhythmic awareness and notional literacy with her – and had a lot of fun doing it!
We switched theater times with some fifth grade classes that were on a field trip. So the students worked with Mr. Pratt on a variety of pantomime activities and learned to turn these into improvised scenes. Here two students are doing a pantomime tug-of-war.
Today our main fun activity was going to Tech Center. The students worked with Mr. Riko in making Prezis about Native Californians.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 6-10 ten times each in cursive. Write a sentence for each word. (2) Do the spelling jumble. (3) Do the Three Times Two 2 math practice sheet. (4) Do 169-170 in the math book.
