The students have been working rather hard this week and moving towards earning their Golden Ticket.

This morning in Language Arts/Reading the students listened and responded to half of chapter 5 in Frindle (it's a long chapter). We then read through an article and highlighted any important sentences, phrases or words that are useful in making a summary. The students watched a video on plagiarism so they are aware of how we need to write our own research and homework in our own words. Finally, we discussed Yonder Mountain.

In Social Studies, we reviewed profit, and distinguished between trading and bartering. The students also bartered goods with each other.

We solved problems about liquid volume and mass in Math.

The students needed more review on the moon and Earth unit, so we reviewed some concepts and postponed the quiz until tomorrow.

ECA was used for reviewing time in Math for the quiz tomorrow, reading through the Reading Final Exam Part 1, and playing Reading Log-opoly.
