MSA Math Monday

This morning the students took the first part of the Math MSA.  It took most of the morning. 

After the test, and before lunch, we spent time sharing more about our family's cultures.

Following lunch and outdoor recess, we continued working on our realistic fiction picture book project.  The goal for today was to listen to either the iPad or the laptop read our story and correct any omission for awkward word choices.  Additionally, the students were to use spellcheck to correct spelling and an online thesaurus feature to improve their word choice.  Some students were successful.  many, however, ran into some challenges!  We used this opportunity to practice problem solving (to troubleshoot) and risk taking!!

We will continue working on the rough drafts later this week!

Group picture day is THURSDAY.  Forms were sent home today!
