Here's what we did today...
October is Fire Safety Month. Today the Oradell Fire Department payed us a visit. We had a fire drill and then spent time with the firemen learning about their truck and fire safety.
In reading....we reread "The Elves and the Shoemaker" and went over the vocabulary words. We also read a decodable book and answered comprehension questions.
In grammar.....we started to learn about possessive nouns.
In math....we worked on word problems and also place value. Today I taught the class a "trick" about how to figure out the value of a digit in a number....ask them if they remember :)
In religion....we read a book about being kind entitles "How Full is Your Bucket." The book explains that we we do good deeds and act kindly it is good for both us and the person we interact with.
