Hello parents and students,
It is Friday! And it was a lovely end to the week. We started the day off with our spelling test. Next, the students did round circles on division. I recommend that students use long division because then they can spot their mistakes; they may also get partial marks for questions. Next, I handed out the review packet as well as the answer key. The students worked on the review and they checked their answer as they went along. For extra practice, all the review will be from the textbook, so the students will be bringing their textbook home.
Next, in language, the students presented their speech to half the class! Boy, where we nervous; some of the 4 minute speeches even became under 3 minutes! Over the weekend, the students should memorize their speech and keep practicing it with enthusiasm. I am so excited to see the final speeches next week. On Tuesday, we will select the students that will move on to the final rounds. Here are pictures from the speeches.
In UOI, the students worked with their group members on their commercial. We asked an expert, Mr.Oliver, to come in and give us some key points. They look great so far and I am excited to show the final commercials during announcements. Here are some pictures of the producers.
o Literature circle # 2 on Monday
o speeches adjust and practice!! (memorize!)
· UOI: no homework
· Remember to reregister spots are filling up for Ms.Haag’s class!
