It's been so long since we've been on a schedule (it was spring break last week) that it took a while to get back into the swing of things. My students were so excited to be back in school they didn't even notice that we were late for lunch. We were so engrossed in our math lesson, it just slipped our minds!
Thank goodness for Ms. Leahy and Ms. Beckett who stopped into the room to ask, "Are you not feeding your kids today?"
No worries! My students were fed, recessed, and back in the classroom to finish math with no complaints.
Monday is Vocabulary day! Here are our new words for the week:
High Frequency words:
baby, edge, enough, garden, only, sharp, together, watched
Built- to make something
Chicken- a type of bird
Danger- something bad can happen
Expected- something you know will happen
Feathers- the soft part of a bird, helps birds fly
Gathered- to bring together
Taught- to be shown something
Vacuum cleaner- a machine that cleans the floor
We worked on plural nouns today. I am using a grammar review grid to make sure we cover all the important material before the TCAP test (in just 2 weeks!) I originally made the grid for my second grade class, but I want my students to have an edge next year. :)
We started by crossing off the squares that my students have already mastered. We got to cross out 6 squares today! The other squares will be reviewed methodically until TCAP time.
Here are pictures from our plurals activity. I downloaded this activity from another blogger, but I don't have the file on this computer. I looked on my school computer and I have the file, but not where I found it. If this is your activity, just know that my students loved it!
We talked about making words plural, then students had to sort the words and tape them to the board.

Not too many today. It will take a few days to get back into the swing of having our pictures made.
