Hump Day

This morning, in math, the children worked independently on two data analysis activities. One was interpreting three different charts based on similar information. The other was interpreting a pictograph. I worked with students who demonstrated challenges with these activities. Unfortunately, some did not make use of the class time. These students will bring their work home. There will be a quiz on Friday.

In reading we sorted words with the /er/ sound according to the spelling of that sound. We discovered many different spelling patterns but noticed that three (er, ir, ur) were the most common, by far. Following PE, lunch and recess, the students will choose their new spelling words.

After we finish spelling, students will continue writing personal narratives. I worked with a group yesterday that listened to my feedback and produced some wonderful work! That was VERY exciting!

We will end the day with the science experiment we began yesterday. Unfortunately, we had to end the lesson early due to a majority of students choosing not to follow directions! :-( I am confident we will have better results today!

Remember, no school tomorrow!
