This morning I introduced some of the fourth grade math to the students. It involved solving equations with parenthesis. Then. while I met with a small group to work on division strategies, the rest of the class continued their work with Hands on Equations. There is a fact family worksheet for homework and we will have a QUIZ tomorrow. There will not be any Hands on Equations on the quiz.
To begin reading I modeled writing a paragraph about the climate of Maryland. I focused on the organization (topic sentence, specific detail sentences supporting the topic and a conclusion, reminding the readers what they just read). Then, while I met with reading groups the students worked on writing their climate paragraphs and completing a reading groups comprehension worksheet.
Blue: We read chapter 2 and practiced answering comprehension questions orally. For homework they need to reread chapter 2.
Red: We read chapter 2 and practiced answering comprehension questions orally. For homework they need to reread chapter 2.
Green: We read chapter 3 and practiced answering comprehension questions orally. For homework they need to reread chapter 3.
ALL STUDENTS need to read both their physical geography and climate paragraphs to an adult and make any corrections that the student notices. Then the student needs to have the adult sign the paper on which the paragraphs are written.
Following lunch and outdoor recess the students will visit the media center for their weekly lesson. Then, we will end the day with a lesson about respect by Mrs. Howard.
