It was fantastic to have such a great turn out at Back-to-School Breakfast this morning. I enjoyed talking to so many parents and sharing what a great class we have this year in room 19.
As typical of these kinds of days, the students were more than a little hyper. So we did mostly pretty focused activities in language arts, math, and social studies. The students illustrated a favorite scene from Holes. We focused on multiplication concepts and skills. Fifth graders learned to outline a text as a way to identify how nonfiction texts are put together in Social Studies and other content areas. Fourth graders studied California’s natural resources.
Homework: (1) Write spelling words 6-10 in cursive and write a sentence for each word. (2) Do the spelling jumble. (3) Complete the illustration for the selected scene of Holes. (4) Do the Three Times One practice sheet. (5) Fourth grade math: Do pages 60-61 and “Patterns, Patterns” on the back of the answer sheet. Fifth grade math: Do pages 61-62, odd only, and “Zoo Trivia” on the back of the answer sheet.
