In reading we continued to study about Narna and the beluga whales. We looked at our vocabulary words for the week and made a concentration game to use to help us practice these words. Our selection test will be next Wednesday and knowing those definitions will really help come test day! We also did a paper about generalizations. We are starting to figure out that by answering a few simple questions about what we read we are able to better understand what the author is trying to teach us. Everyone did a GOOD job with this!
In math we had some fun building oreo towers and reviewing mean, median, mode, and range. Our tallest tower consisted of 12 oreos before toppling over! Our favorite part was devouring the cookies once we finished the activity, but let's face it WE ALL LOVE TO EAT! We also started on chapter 4 which deals with multiplication and division. Today I was SUPER impressed with all the kids have retained from our BRAIN BOOSTING activities. They seemed to have NO TROUBLE at all with the assignment.
Tonight they might have to finish:
1. Journal page 80
2. Reading paper 134
3. REMEMBER to bring back their book ordering form for our class book. Even if they don't want a book, please check no and sign
and return it for me so that I can mail those in on Friday.
4. READ an AR book for at least 20 minutes. Only 3 kiddos have qualified for our November AR Celebration so far!
Have a GREAT evening!
