Happy Thursday all!
It is our work, work, work day because of orchestra and QUEST, so we completed all group projects and finished some independent practice activities as well! I love, love, love how responsible and dependable all of my friends are in our reading class!
HOMEWORK: complete reading of articles, "The Jackson Purchase" and "The Pennyroyal Region" and complete a top-hat compare/ contrast organizer, AND complete essay describing the two using comparison and contrasting signal (clue words).
ALSO, VOCABULARY and SPELLING tests are TOMORROW for ALL CLASSES! Please study word spellings and definitions!
We worked on creating fraction strips for thirds, sixths, and twelfths and finding equivalent fractions among our new manipulatives and models.
Students worked on insulators and conductors with Ms. Frederick.
We are working on using our 4-square organizers to create a descriptive, organized, and detailed writing piece. Thus, we must focus on turning our prewriting into actual writing!
HOMEWORK: complete first paragraph for "4H is the best Field Trip" by classtime tomorrow.
Have a thrilling Thursday evening!
