I have posted the video on YouTube of Mr. Swygert getting the snake out of our classroom. It is under the title: Snake in a Classroom and posted by Jenna P. If you would like to hear me scream like a little girl, then go check it out. You can also see our hero principal!
Number of the Day: 230 (next odd, next even, 10 more, 10 less)
Reading Workshop: We reviewed over our sound spellings for the week and practiced locating them in sentences. The groups that worked with me today, got to practice finding long vowel words in their stories. We read a short article about animals and their ear adaptations. We found the facts (something you can prove) and opinions (something that you feel) within the article.
Math Workshop: We played the star game. This game allowed the students to practice solving addition and subtraction word problems to earn stars. The students with the most stars received an award.
Science: We looked at ways the land can change in slow and fast ways. The rapid changes in land are: volcano, tornado, earthquake, hurricane, tsunami. The slow changes in land are: weathering, erosion, and deposition. We also discussed the different ways that we use coal and oil in our daily lives.
**No school on Friday or Monday.
