Tuesday, June 21st

Today, students played a fraction game in class in order to become more familiar with equivalent fractions.  Then, they had the chance to acknowledge National Aboriginal Day by putting together a "cootie-catcher".

During Language, we had the chance to do a couple of poems.  I introduced how to write cinquain and acrostic poems.  

Homework:
-spelling bee on Friday (please study using the 100 word list)
-show and tell on Friday 
The following is the criteria for your show and tell:
-introduce the subject
-tell your audience why this subject/topic appeals to you
-tell about its history
-describe your subject/topic in as much detail as possible
-rehearse as much as possible
-speak clearly so that your audience may hear you
-must be ready for some questions from your audience
-must be about 2 minutes in length

The following are poetry written by some of the students today:

June is hot.                                                              Hurricane
Up above the sky.                                                    Big, dangerous
National Aboriginal Day.                                           Moving, changing, swirling
Eating food in the sun.                                             Big and very dangerous
                     -Ashlyn                                                Big storm.                                                                                                                                           -Ralph

Never ugly                                                                                Twirling, massive, destruction.
Great swimmers.                                                                     Most dangerous severe weather
Up at the top of the hill.                                                          Funnel cloud.
Irresponsibly curious.                                                                                  -Sean

Beautiful, small                                                                         Enormous, royal.
Changing, flying, resting.                                                       Aging, collapsing, changing.
A Monarch is beautiful.                                                           Castles are very old.
