Another long evening of conferences, but I wanted to quickly chime in on what’s going on.  Today we had an emergency bus evacuation drill, but I’m happy to report that all students quickly and safely evacuated the imaginary bus accident.  Also today, we began our new poetry writing unit with Headline Poems.  Students spent some time cutting out headlines and words they found in yesterday’s paper to use to craft their own poems.

In math today, we spent some time discussing Opposite and Adjacent Angles.  Students learned how to figure out the size of the four angles formed by two intersecting line segments after only measuring one of them.  We discussed how two angles are adjacent if they are next to each other and that they are Opposite or Vertical if they are directly opposite of each other.

Tomorrow will be the final day of regularly scheduled conferences.  If you still need to schedule a conference please send a note or give me a call letting me know what alternative arrangements might work for you.

Homework:

  1. Language Arts:  Comparatives, Superlatives and suffixes page.
  2. Mathematics:  Page 59 Angles in Figures  (For problems 1,2 and 3 students may measure the angles if they have access to a protractor at home, or they may estimate measurement of the angles if they do not.)
  3. Reading:  Read for 20 minutes and fill out pink reading log.  Please make sure that students completely fill out all the sections on the reading logs before you sign them tonight.
