Fabulous Friday!!

This morning, after reading quietly, exchanging books in the media center, or practicing keyboarding skills, we reviewed last night's word problem and then took our weekly math quiz.  Look for the graded quizzes in your child's home folder this evening.

After the quiz we enjoyed an assembly about bullying.  The show had a great message and was quite entertaining!!

After the assembly, the children enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

Then we went to the media center where Mrs. Allaire did a lesson about taking notes on both sides, the pros and cons, of our issues.

When we returned to class, we had 30 minutes for our literacy block.  Needless to say, I had to make some adjustments.

I decided to use the time to do some informal reading assessments with a few students.  While I did this, the rest of the class finished taking notes on both sides of their inquiry project issue.  Then they worked on gathering notes on the 6 habitats, in their science journal.

After literacy we shared homework writing journals.

We ended the day with a class meeting.  We actually did two group shares.  First the students shared one thing they did over Spring Break.  Then they had a chance to share what was on their mind--always a favorite of mine!  :-)  After that, we exchanged thank yous and compliments.  Then we reviewed this morning's anti-bullying assembly. Finally, I shared a story called, "A Torn Heart" about a child having a rough day.  As the child encountered various difficulties, I ripped pieces of a paper heart off, simulating what happens to a persons self esteem as they go through the day being criticized and put down.
