8ELA-We had Reading class today followed by a theme class where we reviewed the concept of mood.  We read two creature poems from one of the library's new picture books and looked at how the vocabulary created a sense of mood.  We then reviewed the instructions for our assignment and had some work time to get started on our own poems.  Mrs. Munro modelled the process on the board with a poem about a pudgy bunny and another one about sadness being represented by a rainstorm.  HOMEWORK:  READING JOURNALS DUE TOMORROW.  SPELLING TEST TOMORROW.  SLOPPY COPY MOOD POEMS DUE TOMORROW.

8SS-We reflected on how origin stories among cultures can have similarities despite being half a world away from each other.  We also thought about what these stories teach us about a culture's world view and their values.  We began work on the new topic of time lines and chronology.  HOMEWORK:  MEASURING TIME WORKSHEET.

7SS-Weekly Updates were assigned today and will be due on Monday.  We corrected pages 61, 62, and 63 which reviewed our learning on time zones.  We began new material today on map projections and why having a globe on Mrs. Munro's field trips wouldn't be a good idea.  NO HOMEWORK.
