Ms. Hargrove was out sick on Monday, and will probably be out Tuesday as well.
Ms. Hess is scheduled for training on Wednesday.
Spelling: Sort #9.
HW Monday: Spelling sort #9
HW Tuesday: Spelling city. Do any activity for sort #9 words to practice.
Math: 4 times tables
Monday we practiced drawing pictures of groups by randomly rolling a dice and making that many groups of 4 OR 4 groups of that number. They then wrote it in words and math.
HW Monday: Make flash cards of their 4's
HW Tuesday: Textbook page 387
Tuesday in class we learned that you can determine a multiple of 4 by finding 2 groups of the number. Example: 4x6 = 2 groups of 2x6 OR 2x6 + 2x6 = 4x6. Their homework will continue this concept. They can use their classwork to help with their homework. We will continue practicing with 4's.
Center activities all week with reading and learning about the 3 branches of government: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. The vocabulary is very difficult for them so each station/center will continue to reinforce the main ideas and concepts.
LA: Monday they continued to do homophones with a partner using verbal puzzles (ie: A piece of word with nothing to do = a bored board).
Tuesday we will take our test on homophones/Sort #8 spelling using Spellingcity in the computer lab. They will be able to practice their words first using Spellingcity.
