End of Marking period 2

Today marks the last day of the marking period. Students do not have school on Monday, it is a report card prep day for teachers.

This morning we the children worked in small groups to read "He Changed the World" and practiced monitoring their understanding of what they read. After that, they worked independently to answer multiple choice questions by underlining or highlighting the information in the text and then eliminating wrong answers.

In math we practiced explaining how to solve division problems, using a calculator, but without using the division or addition button. Then we began solving reverse division problems. We will finish this on Tuesday.

Following a visit to the media center, the students enjoyed lunch and indoor recess.

This afternoon the students continued working on the multiple choice worksheet, finished any odds and ends type unfinished work and then read silently while I met with reading groups.

Bears: We discussed chapter 3, including what Sarah brought the children and the first sign of tension between Papa and Sarah.

Lions: We discussed the title of the chapter and the decision of the children to take a short cut home from school during a snow storm.

We ended the day by writing letters of apology to Mrs. Rose, the media specialist. The students, as a whole, made a lot of bad choices in media today. :-(
