The literacy projects (book reports) were due today. I was SO impressed with them and the class was excited to see what people had done. There was definitely a lot of effort and creativity involved! The next project will go home in a couple of weeks and will be due mid-February.
The new homework has been posted. I know many of you will be happy to see that the math is all in one file for easier printing. I can't vouch for your computers but everything printed fine from mine. Again, thank you for your patience and flexibility.
Our storyline is similar to a Magic Tree House book. Morgan le Fay sent us a letter asking us to help the people of Wamengo, Kansas, as there is a tornado approaching. We need to find out what the tornado warning signs are, how to prepare for a tornado and what to do after a tornado. We read some books, watched a couple of short movies and listened to Mr. Sliva (Kevin's dad) tell us about his experiences with them. The class has done a great job pulling key information from what's been presented. If your child hasn't already offered up some interesting facts, be sure to ask.
Have a great weekend! Apparently, our sunny weather is long gone.
