9-18-19 A PALINDROME
Today's date (each day from the 12th through tomorrow) is a palindrome, when written numerically.
A palindrome is a word, phrase, sentence, or number that reads the same forward and backward. Words like: dad, wow, kayak, or dates like 9-10-19. Kind of a fun tid-bit.
We are still doing some intense and important character work. We are continuing to learn to *read* our characters. We are identifying character traits. We are also looking at changes in the characters and theIR relationships and discussing the cause. You all have some deep thinkers! I'm very proud of them.
In Texas History, we are actually discussing The Constitution and The Declaration of Independence as part of Celebrate Freedom Week. Today we watched "School House Rocks: We the People." We then read the Preamble to The Constitution in unison. We are working on a packet with a lot of information in it. This completed packet will be taken as a test grade. We have already reviewed it. Tomorrow and Friday we will color, fill in the blanks, and assemble the booklet. I expect great success from all.
Next week, we will continue in our *normally scheduled Texas History activities* as we continue to read maps and discuss the "Don't Mess With Texas" campaign.
FUN STUFF IN 4TH GRADE!!!
