Monday January 22nd 2018


Here is what we did today.

Math: Today we worked on comparing units of time. I split the class into two groups and gave each person a sheet of paper which had a unit of time on it. They had to figure out the order of the papers without talking to everyone else. They did really well and figured out where they made mistakes along the way. They were open minded and excellent communicators. Great work!

Spelling: Spelling is due Thursday and the test is on Friday.
Daily Language Review
Language: Today we talked about scary stories. We looked at pictures of a fire and a scary forest and came up with sentences to describe the settings. We talked about using our 5 senses and showing and not telling. The students had to write 6-8 sentences on a scary setting of their choice.

Here is an example of some of the sentences we came up with for the forest:

·      The bright yellow sun shone on the dark gloomy forest.
·      He was horrified as he entered the dark and spooky forest.
·      The grey, dark fog covered the trees as I banged my head.
·      Water dripping from the tree branches into dark muddy puddles.
·      As I walked through the dark, creepy forest the branches creaked in the distance.
·      Crows chirping in the distance.
·      The dark scary forest surrounded me as I was all-alone.
·      The twisty branches poked at me as I travelled through the long, dark path.
·      As I stepped through the creepy forest I heard leaves crackling under my feet.
·      As I was walking through the dark, creepy forest I felt like I was walking through a         graveyard.
·      It was as dark as space.
·      The branches snapped and cracked as I walked through the forest.

      UOI: We continued to work on our scary story paragraphs. Next we used our paragraphs to great a picture of our setting. They needed to only draw what was written in their paragraph. The objective of the activity was to get them to understand that they need to provide a holistic understanding of a setting rather than solely feelings or only physical features. They did really well and came up with some very scary stories!! I was so impressed!

Summative: Each student was asked to bring in a picture book for Monday. No chapter books or books with very few words. The book must have 3-5 sentences per page, a clear introduction and build up. It is very important that a picture book is brought in for Monday as we need it for an activity that week.
