Happy Monday! This week will fly by! Please remember that there is no school on Friday due to a teacher inservice. There is also no school on Monday for a fall break! Due to the break, we will have our next spelling test on October 21st, although the words did go home today. Words are vocabulary words from the class novel we are reading, Orphan of Ellis Island.
We organized all of the items we collected during our school supply drive this morning. We have TONS of stuff! The kids counted everything in groups and now we are totaling everything! We will create a graph with our results this week! Our items are ready to be delivered to Phoenix Children's Hospital if anyone is interested in delivering the items for volunteer hours.
We practiced some typing today and then put our skills to the test responding to our social studies comprehension questions after reading. We read about the Maya, Aztec, and Inca today during social studies. The kids were really interested in these ancient cultures. We completed a fun prediction activity before we read, too.
We didn't have music today, but we will have it tomorrow.
