Bear With Me!!

This is going to be a crazy week!  We will have EOG make-up testing on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week.  That means that about half of the class will be re-taking the EOG and the other half will be doing their regular class work with me.  We will also have some students from other classes coming into our room.  We will NOT have any homework this week.  Homework will resume next week!  If your child is re-taking the EOG, then they will not have to complete a morning journal for any of the days that they test.

Morning Journal:  What is the worst accident you have ever had?

Morning Math: Subtraction and Addition, Place Value, Multiplication

Math:  Today we practiced telling time to the quarter hour.  We looked at the vocabulary such as quarter after=quarter past and quarter to=quarter till.  Practice having your child tell you the time on an analog clock at home.

Imagine It:  Today I introduced the storytelling unit.  We looked at using items around the home to remind us of a story.  I read the story Aunt Flossie's Hats and Crab Cakes Later.  This hat focuses on Aunt Flossie using her hat collection to tell stories about her past.

Science:  I introduced the soil unit.  We created our KWHL charts and watched a short video introducing different aspects of soil.  I will be teaching SS and Science at the same time for the remainder of the school year.
