Thank you to the men and women that serve in our military and take care of us every day as police officers, firefighters, and paramedics. Please take a moment to think of those that lost their lives 11 years ago in the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
Morning Journal: We are the Patriots! What are the characteristics you think we should show every day as Patriots?
Writing Workshop: We are creating our own fairy tales. I read a version of Beauty and the Beast to the students and we discussed the different parts of a fairy tale. The students are working on their own fairy tales in small groups.
Reading Workshop: The students began working on their own with reading, word work, and writing their weekly letters to me. I will continue to add on activities for them to complete during this time.
Math Workshop: We collected data from around the school into a tally mark graph and then created a bar graph and pictograph using this data. We will continue to review graphs and will have a test on Friday.
SS: The students participated in a council meeting. They discovered that a chief does not have the final say, but instead the council helps him to make the decisions and then the women of the council make a final decision on whether or not to have war or peace. They had to decide whether or not to go to war over a piece of very fertile land. They came to a decision that they would form one big tribe and share the fertile land.
