After reading the next chapter in their reading group books independently, we spent the rest of the reading block going over the multiple choice section of the practice MSA. Unfortunately, we didn't finish, so we will continue this afternoon.
In math after completing our warm up we practiced vocabulary using geoaerobics. Then the students took the first quiz of unit 4. This will be scored and sent home this afternoon. There is no homework.
Before heading to lunch and recess, the students went to art.
This afternoon, the students helped me create a check list to use when revising our persuasive writing pieces. Then the children used the checklist, a blue correction pencil and a partner, to revise their own writing. While they revised their writing I met with reading groups.
Lions: We reviewed their list of unknown words from earlier today and reread and discussed chapter 1. For homework they need to reread chapter 1, for fluency, and get a parent signature in their binder.
Crabs: We reviewed their list of unknown words from earlier today and reread and discussed chapter 2. For homework they need to reread chapter 2, for fluency, and get a parent signature in their binder.
Bears: We didn't have time to have a discussion. The students wrote their homework in their binder...they need to reread chapter 2 and choose and explain a title for that chapter.
At the end of the day the children visited the media center since we will not be going tomorrow.
While the students were at the media center, I reviewed their persuasive letters that they revised today, using the checklist. I was so impressed with the changes they recognized that needed to be made!! I could tell they definitely used our lesson and the checklist!!! WOO HOO!!!
