Apple Day!!

Morning Journal:  What is your favorite fruit and why?

Writing Workshop:  We practiced adding supporting details to our writing.  The students finished their fractured fairy tales and presented them to the class.

Reading Workshop:  We reread Ananse's Feast and discussed the characteristics of a folktale.  We took a quiz on this story and the students were allowed to use their books for the quiz.  We practiced the phonics sounds of long a, e, i, o, and u.  We saw that they could be spelled with their own letter or with magic "e" added to the end of the word.

Math Workshop:  We learned how to round to the nearest 10.  Please check your child's math journal for the examples on how to round to the nearest 10.  We learned the rhyme: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 Hit the Floor (Round Down).  5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Raise the Vine (Round Up).

Social Studies:  The students pretended that they were kings, queens, and explorers.  They created skits to pretend that they were asking permission to explore the new lands.  We watched a short video that showed some of the first explorers to the United States.  We discussed the reasons the explorers came to SC.

**Spirit night is tomorrow night from 5-9 pm at Sweet Frog!!  I should be there around 6:30!  I hope to see you there.
