Reading: Today was a reading day with our magazines. We also had WEB.
Language Arts: We continued to work on test writing today. Students concluded their writing to the following prompt: Tell about the best day you ever spent with your family. What made is the best day? A piece of writing is due into portfolios Monday, March 27. Students can select their writing to any one of the three prompts to revise and submit.
Spelling: No spelling today.
Math: We learned a new method of multiplication called the lattice method. This is demonstrated in the SRB. Math homework is found in the journal, pp. 131-133.
Science: We observed the relationship between pitch and length of the vibrating object. Students also experimented with instruments to test how pitch can be changed.
Social Studies: We reviewed the homework from last night and then read an edition of the Michigan Mitten about the Hopewell Indians.
