Today’s Events

on December 20, 2012

Here are some of the highlights from today.

  • We read the story How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  After reading, we made some text to self connections about times when we feel grinchy or grumpy.  We then discussed ways that we can turn our grumpy attitude into a happy attitude.
  • Yesterday we learned all about nouns yesterday.  We learned that nouns are people, places, things, and animals.  Today, we made a Gingerbread Noun Town.  We could make anything to go in our gingerbread noun town as long as it was a noun!


  • In math we spent time preparing for the Unit 4 test by using student response clickers.  We were able to answer the multiple choice questions by pressing the answer on our clickers. After each question we could see how many people got the answer right or wrong.

  • After reviewing for the test we went down to the computer lab to continue practicing our math skills by using Moby Math.  If you have not checked it out at home look at the yellow paper that was sent home either last Friday or today. Any questions, just send me an email.

Tomorrow is Thursday.  I hope to see many of you on Friday at 1:00 to help us with our gingerbread houses and to read our fancy copies from Writer’s Workshop.
