Terrific Tuesday

MSA is over and the sun is shining...what could be better?!?

After completing our math warm up, we read a book about fractions and then went to the computer lab for FASTT math. When we returned to the classroom we used cuisenaire rods to explore equivalent fractions. There is a worksheet for homework and I am hoping to have a quiz on Friday. Stay tuned...

We began reading by finishing the homophone book from yesterday. WE also created a homophone chart in our RRJs. Then we examined ways to win an argument in order to help our persuasive writing skills. When we went tot he computer lab, the students worked on Type to Learn while I conferenced with individuals on their rough drafts.

Following lunch and outdoor recess, the class continued working on their persuasive writing pieces and identifying the meaning of homophones and using them correctly in sentences, while I met with reading groups.

Tigers: Practiced writing high frequency words. Then reread chapter 3 and identified the problem and what could have been done to avoid it.

Bears: practiced writing high frequency words. Then began reading and discussing chapter 3.

Lions: Students finished reading pages 1-15 and marking required sentences with a post-it. Then they discussed the meaning of these sentences with a partner. When we net in group, we began rereading pages 1-15 and discussed the first marked sentence.

We ended the day with a video about plants. The life cycle of a plant will be our next science unit.

The sound projects are due next Thursday!
