Math – Today the kids played Ms. Reid’s class in another good Math Basketball game.  Both classes did really well with the math portion.  Ask your child about the game.

Reading –  We read Ch 9-14 in Maniac Magee.  Hopefully they will be asking you to do a chore without you asking them.  We discussed how fortunate they are and how they should be very thankful for everything they have in life.  They are seeing the perspective from a homeless child’s eyes.

Science-  They went to Science Lab and discussed more on heredity.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Reading –  We read Ch 5-8 in Maniac Magee.  Ask your child about the book and the conversations we had in the classroom.

Math –  Reviewed multiplication of mixed numbers and mixed numbers, division with decimals, and scaling fractions.

Reading – We started a brand new book today ( Maniac Magee ).  This is one of my favorite books as it deals with stereotypes and segregation.  Many good discussion points throughout the book.  The kids came up with many creative names for each chapter that we read today.

SS – Discussed our 5th State Project today, and the expectations for this project.  This is a very simple project, and the students will have plenty of time to do it in the classroom.

Have a great day.

Day 4 of the testing went well for the most part.  Monday –   Science     Tuesday –  Social Studies

We went through a base outline for studying for both of the content area tests.  Reading sections and looking over vocabulary should be the minimum.  Looking up videos on YouTube that pertain to the topic area is another good alternative.  CRCT type practice tests and questions are given throughout the Science book.
