I try to find something clever to title each day, but today all I could come up with was Monday. I guess that shows that it truly was a Monday. Mondays are always so busy in our classroom. I am checking morning journals from the previous week, checking over reading workshop from the previous week, and reviewing over things we learned from the previous week in addition to learning new knowledge.
Morning Journal: If you could adopt any pet, what would it be and why?
Writing Workshop: We continued to work on our settlements and labeling our land features.
Reading Workshop: This week we are reviewing all of our long vowel sounds. We read a short article and practiced drawing conclusions. To draw a conclusion you must take information from your own knowledge+the information from the article=the conclusion. Have your child practice drawing conclusions as they read their story each night.
Math Workshop: We continue to practice addition with and without regrouping. The students are doing very well with addition, but we are beginning subtraction tomorrow and that is usually a struggle.
SS: The students labeled a map of SC with the borders, rivers, ocean, mountain range, main cities, the capital, and they created a map key.
Science: We reviewed over land and water features and took a test on these concepts.
**There is no school on Friday or Monday!!
