Back to School Night

Back to School Night is tonight at 7!  I can't wait to see you!

The children began their day by visiting the media center.  After that, they worked with Mrs. Benson as I continued (and finished!!) my informal reading assessments.

Mrs. Benson used the book Boxes for Katje to identify the characteristics of realistic fiction and practice asking questions before and during reading to make predictions.  Then the children worked independently to complete the rough draft we began yesterday afternoon.

We began math by completing a warm up and reviewing last night's homework.  Then we practiced rounding THREE digit numbers to the closest ten.   Click here to view our lesson, or you can find it in the lessons section of this blog.  Unfortunately, we did not have time for the children to practice independently in class.  So tonight's homework is rounding to the nearest ten with TWO digit numbers.

After math the children enjoyed lunch and recess.  Then they went to the computer lab where Mrs. Howard did a lesson about citizens in our community.

We ended the day with a science lesson.  The children worked in small groups, using the lap tops, to play a game called Tinker Ball.  The purpose of this activity was to investigate how an object's motion can be changed in a variety of ways.  Click on the Tinker Ball link to see it for yourself!
