April 4th, 2007
Cursive: Ten cursive sentences of seven or more words each are due Friday.
Reading: Today was a discussion day in Literature Circles. We also went to the library and students checked out informational books for their “I-search” project.
Writing: None due to the half-day schedule. Students are continuing to research their “I-search” project topics. It might be a good idea to visit McFarlen or Baker Park Library and look for more books, and use the computers, too, to find more information about the selected topic. This project will be due on April 27, but will likely be presented on April 30 via PowerPoint.
Math: None today due to the half-day schedule.
Science: None today due to the half-day schedule. Kid’s Inquiry Conference applications were passed out today and are due on April 18. Kid’s Inquiry Conference will be April 27 at the University of Michigan-Flint.
Social Studies: We added notes to our minibooks about the French and British arriving in Michigan. A test over the French and British in Michigan will be tomorrow.
