After specials, students were directed to work on verbs, nouns, and action words. They also completed worksheets that made them practice on simple subjects, predicates, and irregular verbs. For Math, students were split up into centers. Three groups were review centers while one group focused on a road trip activity. This particular group had to record the distance, in miles, from one destination to another.
For Social Studies, we read about the differences between the economies of the North and the South. Then we began work on their dioramas. Each group was directed to make 2 dioramas. 1 for the South after the Civil War ended and 1 for the South during Reconstruction. Some groups were not happy to be paired together but I told them, "You get what you get and you don't pitch a fit." They seemed to understand (and some even giggled) so they didn't ask to be changed again :)
