An answer of 1 means disagree, and a 10 means agree.  You may choose any number in between to show exactly how you feel.


We have been brainstorming the many things that make Grant School unique and special.  If you have an idea to share, you can add that -- it's the last question.  It's optional.

Lexia (10 minutes)



  1. Write a new post on your blog.  It should be about the book you are currently reading.  You need at least one strong paragraph (8 sentences or so, with descriptive sentences in it, so that people will want to read it!)

      3.  Go to this link and read through the directions.  We will not be starting here today, but this is what is going to happen in             social studies, so you can get a heads up.



     4.  Make a circle map of missions, and see what kind of information you can find.  We are gathering information in context 

          of the California Missions.  Use this link.         https://docs.google.com/a/petk12.org/document/d/1N7W07sUtldaBbKgg51r0B8RglU4zc1_-EgE7Sjp4z0M/edit


     5.  Typing practice.

1.  Lexia 10 minutes


2.  Check your email and fill in the form from me about furniture choices you liked or didn't like.


3.  Take an AR quiz


4.  Create a Haiku about your seashell art.



A haiku is an unrhymed three-line poem. It is based on a traditional Japanese poetic form. Though there are different ways to write haiku, the traditional pattern in English is to write the first and last lines with five syllables each, and the middle line with seven syllables. In other words, the pattern of syllables looks like this:

Line 1: 5 syllables
Line 2: 7 syllables
Line 3: 5 syllables

Here’s another way to visualize the same thing:

1 2 3 4 5
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
1 2 3 4 5



To begin writing your haiku poems, just follow these steps:

  1. Think about your seashell.  Look carefully at it.  Think of what the real one felt/looked like. 
  2. Think about what is different about your third line. The last line of a haiku usually makes an observation. That is, the third line points out something about the subject you are writing about. What observation do you want to make?
  3. Start writing on a new doc, titled "Seashell Haiku".
  4. Don’t forget to count the syllables as you read to make sure you’ve got the right pattern.
  5. Finally, “center” your poem on the page like haikus usually are.


Remember, we will be pasting your Haiku to the seashell art.


Put your name and 4th grade at the end.  :)


You are going to go back to your email, from me, with a form titled Haiku turn in.

You will need to copy the link of your page, and paste it in the form line on my email.

That is how you turn it in.


Now you can go to the typing practice link.
