First,we started out with DOL by respelling words that are spelled incorrectly. Next, we did extremely easy multiplication facts for our math lesson. Ms. Kepley, our student teacher, instructed us on this topic.
Then, at recess Jordyn,Nina,Jena,and I played extreme hopscotch by doing two twists, two handstands ,and one cartwheel.
After recess, we began reading our new chapter book, The Homework Machine. We don't really know what it is about yet because the characters are keeping it a secret, but we know that the perspective is first person.
At about 11:00am we moved into language arts. We learned our vocabulary for our new story "Sewed Up His Heart." One of our words was anesthesia, which is a drug that puts you to sleep for surgery. Then Mr. Kootman gave us some time to start our Clues Chart. This is our prereading so we can get an idea of the story before we read it.
We did this up until lunch, which was turkey hot dog and taco salad. At lunch recess, I did pull-ups on the monkey bars.
After lunch, we went to Ms. Barone's for science. We learned about ecosystems. Two of our vocab words are biotic and abiotic.
Then we went back to Room 40 where we graded people who were presenting their mission projects. One of the qualities that makes a good report is if people speak loudly.
After that, Mr. Kootman gave a bit more time to start our homework and then we went home!
