This morning in math we continued our study of Hands on Equations. There is a worksheet for homework BUT the students are only supposed to do rows 1-5 tonight. I will be assigning rows 6-10 tomorrow night...but they don't know this yet, so shhhhh!!! :-)
In reading I modeled writing a paragraph about the physical geography of Maryland using the graphic organizer. We discussed the organization of a paragraph and I stress that the topic needed to be mentioned in both the topic and concluding sentences. The middle parts of the paragraph are the support sentences that name and explain the topic sentence. While I met with reading groups the students wrote their physical geography paragraphs, read sections of their new reading group books and wrote cartoons for their new WOW (word of the week), baffle.
Red: Read and discussed chapter 1. Tonight they need to reread chapter 1 and get a parent's signature.
Blue: Discussed historical fiction. Read and discussed chapter 1. For homework they need to reread chapter 1 and get a parent's signature.
Green: We read chapters 1 and 2 and discussed the problem(s) in chapter 1. For homework they need to reread both chapters and get a parent's signature.
Following lunch and outdoor recess we will have a class meeting to discuss the concept of respect. We will share ideas about how to show respect to ourselves, other people and things.
We will end the day by discussing rhythm and rhyme and working in small groups on our MSA rap.
