Good Afternoon/Evening

First of all, I am sorry for the late post...we all had a very busy day!!
Today we continued to work on features of nonfiction text in reading.  We spoke specifically about photographs and how they help the reader to comprehend (or remember) what they read.  We also reviewed the different strategies for figuring out unknown words.  We had a most exciting grammar lesson ( yes- you read that correctly!)  We read "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and then we discussed adjectives to describe the Grinch in the beginning of the story and at the end.  Then we did a fun project to go with the lesson...I will post a picture soon.  In math we continue to practice regrouping in addition.  We have finished the chapter, so I will give the test next week -prior to the vacation.  In social studies we spent some times discussing the different holidays celebrated in December, including Christmas, Hanukah, and Kwanzaa.

We TOTALLY ran out of time today...we were just THAT busy and therefore ( much to the students' disappointment) there is NO HOMEWORK tonight.  There was no time to write homework and I didn't want parents to feel forced to check the blog to find the enjoy :)

See everyone tomorrow!
