Such was the fate of one small boy with the LONGEST. NAME. EVER. His name was Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi- pip peri pembo.
On a side note, there was one time during the story that gave me some giggling fits. I don't think my students knew what to do when they saw their teacher acting like a 5 year old, so they just laughed along. :)
Math today was the Topic 7 test, and I am proud to report that 5 of my students made a 100%! We reviewed the skills first, and I had many good scores. Also, progress reports went home today, so hopefully you will see an improvement!
In science we did a KWL on the Solar System!
(yes, if you look closely, you will notice that I misspelled astronauts. Sorry.)
Space, the final frontier, these are the voyages of General Delk's Army. We looked at THIS awesome website. Kids Astronomy is a great website that is fun to look though. We learned that the Solar System is like one big family, if you look at it through Greek and Roman eyes. Fascinating!
This week, we are going to make a Solar System Family Tree. I'll admit, this is the first time I've really looked into astrological mythology. It really makes for a good soap opera!
No pictures of literacy centers today. During center time, we pretended we were on a safari through the room and students had to find words for each letter of the alphabet. Bonus points for putting the words in a sentence! The team with the most words found will win a prize! Now I just have to go through the papers and see what Team won!
Our Daily Brain
p.s. the wonderful Ms. Waddell and her students started their own blog today! You can check it out at www.thefabulous5s.blogspot.com
