We started the morning with a page using our story. They had to find the sentences I had selected from the story and record the page number on the paper. It was a LOCATING SENTENCE activity. No one really should have had to take this home. ALMOST all of them were able to finish it up at school.
Next, we went straight into our reading centers. One center they worked with me on their fluency. It is improving all the time! The baseball reading group is going to try it again tonight at home to see if they can beat our score at school. They will need someone to set a timer for them for ONE MINUTE! Good Luck Readers! At another center they were working on sequencing playing "READING RING". All of them did a GREAT job at this. The last center they were working at their seat on a ladder write activity practicing with their spelling words.
In the middle of centers we did take a break for pictures! They ALL looked soooo nice and everyone smiled for their picture! They should turn out GREAT!
After lunch, we read some more about being a PERFECT PERSON. Boy day two's task was going with NO FOOD! The kids thought that would be really hard and they all agreed that after hearing about Milo's adventure they should be happy with their supper and never complain about it.
We finished the day with a short lesson over the constitution and math centers. Again, it was a SUPER BUSY day and I really feel like they should not have more then 3 things to finish up at home. If you are seeing lots coming home, remind your child to use their time at school wisely. I am doing a lot of redirecting and reminding to try and help them finish things up here.
Tonight they could have to finish:
-Alexander locating sentence activity
-Baseball group has a fluency read
-Math review books need to be signed
-Pumpkin Math Time page
*They do have a chapter one math test tomorrow so going through that review book would be an AWESOME idea.
*Tonight's PUZZLER: If I left for my vacation destination at 8:15 am and arrived at the resort at 5:10 pm, how long did it take me to get there? I will have a surprise at school tomorrow for ALL kiddos who can write the correct answer to this puzzler in their agenda.
Have a GREAT evening!
