After that, we did some Math and began learning about fractions. For Reading, we reviewed Daily 5 Read to Self. I plan on reviewing one Daily 5 per day so that at the end of the week we are back up to all 5. I also decided that for those students who still want to try to pass notes, whisper, or play around during Daily 5 time, I will have an alternate "activity" for them. If I catch anyone misbehaving during Daily 5 time, I will just call them up, give them this worksheet, and then allow them to try to return to the activity.
For Science today, we began talking about landforms by filling out our mini landform books using the mini anchor charts. All of this is from Jeannie Hunter's Fun With Landforms: Games and Activities Packet.
We will continue filling in our booklets tomorrow and then play Landform Concentration, also from Jeannie's packet, to review the terms.
All in all, it was a pretty stress-free day back - here's to a stress-free rest of the week! (I wish!!)
