In music we played a game called Where's Susie? This was to combine dance and music together. It was a lot of fun and people were laughing and playing along.
In our novel groups this week we focused on learning about character traits and scene settings. We learned that character traits come from the inside of a person and how they treat life and other people. Settings are when and where the story takes place.
We worked together to revise our stories. Revising means to improve our writing. We got together and helped each other to make our stories better. We looked for parts in the story that we had questions about. We looked for WOW parts of the story, too. Then finally we edited our stories today. We did this ourselves and corrected our spelling, capitalization, and punctuation mistakes. Finally we recopied our stories.
Today was our Grandparent's Day. We took pictures of everyone and their grandparents. We gave them a tour of our school and we had breakfast together. We showed our classroom, artroom, and they joined us for Meet and Greet. There were over 300 grandparents in attendance.
Mrs. Linstead gave us a work list today. This was a list of activities that we needed to finish before the end of the day. It included many things we had started earlier in the week but needed to complete. We worked on our own for most of the morning and the afternoon. She said we did so well that in the middle of the morning she gave us a dance break. We can really bust a move, can't we!
