Hey guys and gals...HAPPY THURSDAY! I hope you all are staying warm today out there! Today we had a very nice Liturgy & afterwards had the Monarch Awards. Congrats to Keeli Langford on receiving the award for this trimester!! (pictures below) Also a BIG happy birthday to Laura and Emma today!! I also announced the Young Author's runner up's that came in 2nd place which were...Alyssa's story, Riley's story, and Mary's story. Good job girls & to EVERYONE on doing such a great job on these. I will be rereading everyone's final drafts over the weekend and having a Language Arts grade for them by next week for you all :)
LANGUAGE ARTS: I CAN...find inferences in text. I CAN... write a memior. Today we worked on visualizing and inferring from a historical fiction piece. We also continued with our reading groups. For writing we were introduced to the beginning of writing memiors. We shared our items that we brought in with a partner and discussed with each other what that item represented.
HOMEWORK: Read for 30 minutes & log your hours online (by tonight!).
HOMEWORK: FIELD TRIP PERMISSION SLIPS DUE FRIDAY! Project proposal for Science Fair and parent signature form due Friday.
SOCIAL STUDIES: Today we checked our homework and wrote down facts about all 13 colonies.
HOMEWORK: Test Wednesday.
MATH: I CAN...list common multiples and find the Least Common Denominator (LCD) of a set of fractions. Today we checked over our homework and were introduced to improper fractions by a Smart Board game. The link for the fraction pizza game is HERE! Another helpful video is HERE!
HOMEWORK: Workbook pg. 47. Simple Solutions lessons 3 & 4 are due by Friday morning. Test next Thursday.
RELIGION: Today the Master Gardener came in and the students dissected a worm!
