Rainy Tuesday

This morning the students listened to the story Hot Air Henry and identified the plot. During independent work time they completed reading group related tasks, identified words that make up contractions and completed the final copy of their personal narrative.

Reading Groups:
Cheetahs: Reviewed the events from pages 4-7 and read and discussed pages 8-13. For homework tonight they need to reread pages 8-13 and get a parent signature in their planner.
Bears: Some students shared their RRJ entry about their personal "dragon" (challenge. Then they began reading and discussing chapter 1. For homework they need to reread chapter 1 and get a parent signature in their planner.

In math we reviewed using estimation to solve word problems. We redid the worksheet from yesterday's class work together. Then the students worked independently on a new one. I worked with a small group to practice solving 3 digit subtraction problems. There is a word problem worksheet for homework.

Following PE, the students enjoyed lunch and recess. After that we selected a star student that best exempliphies the trait of trustworthiness. Then the students continued working on their independent work while I attended a meeting in the building. The students ended the day by watching the rest of the economics video and identifying the 3 types of resources and an example of each.
