Reading: We used Literature Circles time to start the Social Studies Essential Skills test. We also had WEB silent reading time.
Language Arts: Today we studied a way to write poems using fragments instead of complete sentences. We wrote the following poem as a class:
First Day of School
Nasty lunch food,
Bus stops waiting.
Students began working on a fragment poem of their own, some using previous stories to turn into their poems.
The last piece of writing will be due June 2 and will be a collection of poems.
Spelling: None due to the Social Studies Essential Skills test.
The Level Four Core Word list is an option for continued practice.
Math: None due to the Social Studies Essential Skills test.
Science: None due to attending the Third Grade Musical.
Social Studies: None due to attending the Third Grade Musical.
