Monday Notes: We learned about this young woman today. Her name is Maria Weems. In 1855, she dressed as a boy and made her way to freedom in Canada, with the help of people on the Underground Railroad. After reader’s workshop, we took our cameras and walked around Fairview School, taking pictures of some important places and faces. We wrote about our camera walk in our notebooks. Many people have mixed feelings about our new school. We learned about using parentheses in math problems.
(3×2) + 4 = ? 3 x (2 + 4) = ? We also finished our Zack Files book. A great start to the week.
Tuesday Notes: This morning, we sang a song about Harriet Tubman in music class. Then we read a book about her. The book is called Moses. We are nearly finished with our lit. groups. In the afternoon, we practiced more multiplication sentences with parentheses. We also sorted our spelling words. The day was busy, but fun.
Thursday Notes: We are doing super well with our recorders at music. After music and art, today was a WRITING day. We worked on our zine pieces in the morning. After lunch, we worked on a writing prompt called “Rainy Day.” After library, we practiced for our spelling test. The day zipped by.
