### Thrilling Thursday...Bye, Bye PARCC!

Today is our final day of PARCC testing for this school year!  WOO HOO!!!!!

After the children read quietly or practiced keyboarding, we learned about some fun end of the year, SGA sponsored spirit day from our class representative.  Then we had a little talk about Internet safety and sharing documents with others via Google Chrome.  Basically, I have instructed students NOT to share any documents at all for any reason.

After that, we began our math rotations.  During the small group, teacher-led instruction, we used algorithms and number lines to solve word problems involving the addition and subtraction of time.  Today's focus was on what was tricky for the children as they solved each problem.  DUring  math with a parnter, the children used a map of the National Zoo to plan an itinerary for our field trip in zoo.  Students had to schedule the start and end time for each exhibit, calculate an elapsed time, and include a 30 minute lunch.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the children visited the site, Roboclock 3, to calculate elapsed time.

There is no formal homework this evening.  We WILL have a quiz on word problems involving elapsed time (addition and subtraction of time).  I have posted some links on Google Classroom, the homework page, to help students prepare.

After math we took a Go Noodle brain break and then reviewed the literacy independent work tasks.  Unfortunately, due to a few interruptions to our schedule, then it was time for lunch and outdoor recess.

After recess, the children took the End of Year PARCC for language arts and reading.

We are now officially done with PARCC testing for third grade!  Can I get a WOO HOO????

The children ended their day in art with Mrs. Daniell.

I wonder what those interruptions to your schedule could have possibly been. ;-)
