Yesterday, after our morning work, Mr. Tom from Exploration Place came in and we finished building our houses to withstand a tsunami! We had such a fun time learning about what works and what didn't work to keep our houses strong and waterproof!
Next, we wrote in our composition notebooks, had our math lesson about decimal place value, then we learned about adverbs for our English lesson. We also received our new spelling word lists this week. We are still working on homophones! Make sure you know not only the spelling of these words, but the definitions as well since you'll need to know that information for the test.
After lunch and MTSS, we had library skills, then we read our new story of the week, "Happy Birthday, Mr. Kang." Next, we got into our Daily 5 groups and worked on some language arts skills.
Finally, we learned about the Chinese culture and created our own dragons. We had a great day! Homework for last night was Reading Calendars and any unfinished work from the day.
