We started the morning in the Tech Center where the students started work on a survey and data reporting project. They wrote surveys yesterday, and they typed them up this morning. They will continue by surveying their fellow students - and any adults who want to participate, too - and then will be entering all this data in Excel in the new few weeks.
We had a bit of a New York City theme today. We read and discussed a selection from the classic story A Cricket in Times Square and we discussed both why it is a fantasy and what the theme of the selection is.
We corrected a couple of tests from the day before winter break; the results are all on the grade book. We also went over and discussed all our homework.
After lunch, we continued our NYC theme with Mr. Pratt who will be working with the students on this year’s production of Annie.
And we finished the day with our reading buddies.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 6-10 ten times each and a sentence for each word. (2) Do Spelling Jumble. (3) Do “Advertisements” "Context Clues?” Practice Book 197 and 198. (4) Do the History Chapter Review. (5) Do Fractions to Decimals 2.
There is no math book assignment today. The Chapter Four History test will be on Friday. Students will be able to use the review sheets and notes on the test but not the book.
