Happy Monday all!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

This morning, we COMPLETED our testing...WHEW!!!  Upon completion of it, we switched for shorter Reading and Math classes.  In reading, we turned in our 'Wordly Wise' spelling packets and then took the spelling portion of the test.  MANY students spelled, 'onomatopoeia' correctly!  I took up the spelling tests and then passed out the definitions test.  We will be using this format from here on out because I want students to study and know the definitions, but also how to correctly spell the words and not just put emphasis on one or the other.  A new spelling packet was administered and will be due this Friday.  Please work on it all week to prepare for the assessment.  We also got NEW reading groups today and all groups got a NEW book!  Please read the first chapter of each of your books tonight!  Students had one of the following books: The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary, Ellen Tebbits by Beverly Cleary, Class Clown by Johanna Hurwitz, How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell, or Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume.  We are so excited about reading these books!

In math, we worked on completing our Chapter 2 assessment over estimation and rounding.  We will continue working on it tomorrow as many ORQs are not yet a '4'.

We had Library for specials and then earned a GREEN paw in lunch!

Finally, we transitioned to Social Studies with Mrs. Ingold where there is no homework for this evening.  My Science class used paper plates to make models of animal's mouths because all animals have unique mouths that are adapted for eating and their survival.

Have a great start to your week, this evening!
Mrs. Thomas

Thanksgiving is 17 days away!
