Wonderful Day!

Today during language the students read a narrative text and then worked on a word study with a partner where they had to find dialogue, contractions, past tense verbs and adjectives in the text. The students also had a chance to read their narratives to a small group.

In math we continue to talk about 2 D shapes. Please draw a pentagon and an octagon and share with Mom or Dad the properties of these 2 shapes. Please complete these questions if you have time:

1. 6X6=        2. 27÷3=          3.  ____  + 16 = 8X4

Have a great evening and see you tomorrow.
