Monday: On Monday we had our school day off celebrating our amazing Martin Luther King Jr. Did you know Martin Luther King Jr went to college at age 15? That is one of the many things we learned this week.
Tuesday: On Tuesday we had a very successful day. We started off the day with doing DLR. It stands for Daily Language Review. Then, we moved into reading The One And Only Ivan chapters Lucky - Home of The One and Only Ivan. Following that we did grammar 18 and Words Their Way 18. In grammar we learned about main verbs and helping verbs. After that we did a CGI problem in math. Then we did some work in our go math book teaching us how to find equivalent fractions. Then we learned about Sir Francis Drake, and how he was sent to steal gold from Spain because England was jealous about how much gold they had. Then we built structures out of books that could withstand earthquakes for science to represent how builders have to try to make buildings that won't be completly damaged by natural processes. Then we ended the day with PE
Wednesday: On Wednesday it was a very busy yet short. We started off by DLR time, it was very original because we do it every morning. Then we moved to reading. For reading we read from Art Lesson through Hunger in the One and Only Ivan. And continuing that we did the comp. questions. Once we were done with that we moved onto recess. after recess we came in the room and went straight to xtra math. During that time we did the mid chapter checkpoint. It took a little while but we all got through it. Then after math we moved to science. For science we got a new packet and the seat partners came up with ways to get to a volcano with out getting the scientists killed just to get some information.. I mean thats pretty crazy. After a little bit of thinking we went to get ready for packing up and going home. It was a pretty good day too.
Thursday: Again we started off the day by doing DLR and correcting it. Then we moved on to reading the One and Only Ivan. We read through Still Life through How. A few minutes later after reading we worked on the comp. questions and the vocabulary packet. Then we moved on to going to science lab. It was really fun. Afterwards we moved on to math after recess. We started by doing xtra math then moved onto the real deal. We did 6.6 lesson which was comparing fractions. After lunch we had a special guest, his name was Mr.Marshal. He helped us with our poplite time lines. For our California explorers. Finally we were on our way to music.
Friday: We are still exploring Friday
