Here's what we did today....
In reading....we continue to read fairy tales and discuss the elements of fairy tales. We read a story about Red Riding Hood today...but told by the wolf! We discussed point of view. Tomorrow we will begin to write our fairy tales!
In spelling....we did a pretest for our new words. The new words all have "kn, wr. or ph" in their spelling, so we talked about silent letters and letters that are paired together to make one sound.
In math....talked about counting patterns and ordinal numbers. We also started to review the major concepts of the chapter through centers. Test is Thursday.
