DPA and CPR started our day today. We then went over the hand-out for the expectations for encouragement speeches. The first encouragement speeches will be due on Friday, January 30. The literature circle novels were then handed out and the groups met to discuss how many pages each time the students would be reading and what roles they would be completing All students have a copy of the dates, pages and roles of their own. Students then had some time to read their selected novels. Read aloud was before recess. After recess, the students had time to work on their native legends summaries and a couple of groups continued with their electricity experiments. After lunch, all grades worked on questions involving mass (how much something weighs.) The students ended the day in French class. Ms. Dycus wants the students to remember that there is a test next Thursday.
