Hump Day

In math we practiced identifying and finding the product of multiplication problems using arrays and number lines. Part of this lesson included the realization that multiplication has to be equal groups...if the groups are unequal then it is an addition problem. The students worked on two worksheets while I met with two groups. One groups practiced using arrays. The other used number lines. There is a worksheet for homework.

In reading we read Jack and the Beanstalk and charted examples from the story that math the characteristics of folktales. We also reviewed writing topic sentences using work from students in our own class. We identified what was good and made adjustments to those that needed it.

While I met with reading groups the students continued charting examples from the story and rewriting their topics sentences.

Reading Groups:
Blue: We reviewed their beginning, middle and end homework from earlier in the week and discussed why their responses were correct or incorrect. For homework tonight they need to use this discussion to write a summary of the book.

Red: We reviewed their suffix homework and discussed why certain words were not examples of words with suffixes. For homework they need to reread the book and write the beginning, middle and end on the sticky note.

Green: We reviewed their beginning, middle and end sticky notes from homework. Tonight they need to reread the story and write a summary on the lined paper I provided.

Following lunch and recess the students will go to PE. When they return we will produce sound using tuning forks.
