Rainy Thursday

This morning, in math, we reviewed rounding numbers to the nearest ten and hundred. Then we practiced using that skill to estimate word problems involving subtraction. For homework there is a worksheet that is similar to our classwork. We will have a quiz tomorrow that will cover place value, numeric patterns, subtraction and rounding numbers.

In reading we used the National Geographic to identify text features common to non-fiction text (table of contents, bold print, diagrams, maps, chart, index, etc.) Then the students identified sensory images that were used by the author who wrote the article called Lively Lizards. Additionally, the students continued working on their writing pieces...many have completed their final draft! After that, the children completed any unfinished work from the week. During this time, I continued conferencing with individual students on their writing pieces.

Following lunch and indoor recess, the children went to the computer lab for a lesson with Mrs. Rose, the media specialist. When they return to class, Mrs. Howard will conduct a lesson about organization.
