Finish UP Friday!

The children began their day in music.

When they returned to class, we spent some time discussing the character analysis writing piece.  So far, the ones I have scored have been well done.  So, I asked the students, what was different...what did I do differently that helped them be more successful.  We also began planning for our next writing piece which will be an informative piece about an African American inventor.

Then the students had time to work on any unfinished work from the week.  This included; publishing the character analysis, the reading comprehension worksheets for chapters 1, 2 and 3 for Lily and Miss Liberty, cursive writing papers and the Statue of Liberty self-guided research.

I met with individuals who needed support on any of the listed assignments.

In math, after a warm up and review of last night's homework, we took a quiz.  This week, for the front of the quiz, each student only had 11 minutes to complete it.  I wanted to get a fluency score.  The back side was untimed.  These have been scored and returned to the students.

Following lunch and outdoor recess the students continued working independently, with the help of Mrs. Benson and myself, on their "finish up Friday" tasks.

WE ended the day by viewing a video clip about the rise of the Aztec Empire.
