3-Ellis Tuesday, October 10th

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic long Thanksgiving weekend. 

Here is our song for the week. 

Thanksgiving Day

by John Forster & Tom Chapin

When we were farmers we hauled in the harvest And founded Thanksgiving Day.

With food in the shed for the winter ahead

We would gather together to say

Thanks for our health. Thanks for our hearth And -- the bounty that grows from the ground. With our loved ones near we bless the year That's brought us safely 'round.

Now we are shoppers. We drive to the market. The farm seems a light year away.

Still, every October we pause to remember That time-honored, old-fashioned day.

Thanks for our health. Thanks for our hearth And the bounty that grows from the ground. With our loved ones near we bless the year. That's brought us safely 'round.

Everything changes, yes, even Thanksgiving. Let's rededicate this old day

To helping the hungry, the poor and the homeless So all may be able to say--

Thanks for our health. Thanks for our hearth And the bounty that grows from the ground. With our loved ones near we bless the year That's brought us safely 'round.

With our loved ones near we bless the year That's brought us safely 'round.

 

As per blog note, our Rock Walk has been rescheduled. We want a nice sunny day. Hopefully we will get one next Tuesday. 

Literacy - we got new spelling words for the week. We hope to begin our Daily 5 Literacy rounds next week, along with our "LLI" (Leveled Literacy Intervention) reading groups. Our focus in Work On Writing is on fluency and punctuation; mainly capitals and periods. 

Math - what's is a whole number? Why aren't fractions whole numbers? What are they if they aren't whole numbers? What else is there? 

SS - we continue with mapping. This week we are looking at a mapping scale. So, if one centimetre on the map equals 100 km in real life, how many km's is 10 cm?  Hmm?

Science - the whole world rocks!!  Hmm? So, what do I know about rocks anyway? 

Good to see all of your bright smiling faces again this morning. Have a great evening. See you tomorrow!
