Hello Students of Room
34! I am Alana your Roving Reporter for today.
First, we sometimes do
D.M.A. In D.M.A we do Language, Analogies, and a Geography question.
The Language part is just fixing two sentences like “john do you
now your ABC’S.” The mistakes were “John,”, now is
supposed to be “know”, and a question mark at the end of the
sentence. Analogies are like comparing for examples apple:
fruit :: carrot: vegetable. The Geography part is just a
world question like “Where is Death Valley located?” the answer is
California. When we are done with our D.M.A we write down our
homework in our minder binders, Mr. Coley’s way of saying Agenda,
check our mailboxes, then sit down and read a book. Then we do the
pledge right before we start correcting, Mr. Coley picks a teacher
to correct, and then we start correcting.
Afterwards, we went into
spelling. Mostly the only thing we did was correct our Monday and
Tuesday’s homework. Monday’s homework was to sort each spelling word
in the correct column. Tuesday’s homework was to read each clue and
find which spelling word goes with each clue. We also got our
Vocabulary page we did yesterday to get ready for reading.
Around 10, we moved onto
reading. In reading we corrected our Vocab. page which was take our
vocabulary words and find synonyms (same) and antonyms (opposite)
for each word. After we finished correcting our page we moved on to
the story we are reading. The story is called The Fear Place.
In the story there is a boy named Doug Grillo who is left alone in a
desert full of mountains. So Doug tries to go and find his brother,
Gordon, who is camping on the mountains and tries to face his fear
of heights. After we were done with reading we got our math books
out for math rotations. We went to recess at 11:15.
When recess was over, we
went straight into our math classes. I am in Ms. Martinez’s math
class, so I am not sure what the math classes taught. Well, for our
math class we reviewed for our quiz. She wrote two problems on the
board, picked two volunteers, and they put their answer up on the
board. After we reviewed on our own, she passed out the quiz we
started it. Almost everything we do is read when we are done, so we
read our books. Ms. Martinez took our quizzes, told us to write down
our homework, push our chairs in, clean the floor and leave. And
After math class we go to lunch.
Lunch is now over, so
the next thing on the agenda was Peacemakers. In Peacemakers we
played a few games. The first game we played was Noah’s Ark. What we
do in Noah’s Ark is we pick a random card out of a red bag and
whatever animal we get we make the sound of the animal not the name
the sound. Then we would try to find other people who are making the
same noise as us. There was one though who didn’t have a group and
that was the duck group. Then we played 2 more fun games. The bell
rang during the last game so we quickly ran back to our classroom,
went inside, and started packing up.
