Yesterday was about nothing except play practice. We’re almost doing dress rehearsals right now, and we’re using props for all the performances. The backdrop is scrumptious and we can hardly wait to do our full performances next week.
Today, on the other hand, was mostly about orchestra. Tonight is the performance and we had a sort of dress rehearsal with Mr. Mason this afternoon.
We did some early morning PE as it is so brutally hot today, and we read another chapter of By the Great Horn Spoon! We did a Science activity with magnetism, and we read about the Great Depression in social studies. Along the way I tried to give them as much time as possible to get a good head start on homework.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 11-15 ten times each in cursive and write a sentence for each word. (2) Do Great Horn Spoon 17 chapter 17 study sheet. (3) Do “Women’s Suffrage” activity paper. (4) Do “Great Depression” study questions. (5) Do the decimal division worksheet. (6) Do the problem solving worksheet.
