This morning in reading we reviewed the directions for the Lift-a-Flap pictures and identified tricky parts and what we could do to improve the directions. Students wrote about this in their RRJ after discussing in small groups and with the entire class.

After that the students chose a new set of directions in the Pop Ups book and followed the directions, without help or modeling from me, to create the project.

In math we wrote word problems for multiplication expressions. I emphasized that the students needed to give information (using the factors and making sure they were equal groups) and ask a question. We began a worksheet in class and students are to finish the backside for homework. However, students were given the chance to begin the homework in class. Some did so and therefore, those children did not write homework in their planner.

Following art, lunch and recess the students continued working on their BCRs and their pop ups. Then we shared their pop ups to celebrate their reading to perform a task and their creativity.

We ended the day by predicting the pitch that different sized nails will make and explaining our thinking behind our predictions. We will test these tomorrow.

Spelling packets are due tomorrow and our traditions assignment is due, too!
