This morning, after reading quietly or practicing keyboarding, we began our math rotations.
During the small group, teacher-led, instruction we reviewed identifying the perimeter of rectangles with missing side lengths and then explored constructing rectangles with the same area but different perimeters.
During math with a partner, the students finished the flap activity, they began yesterday, where the identified the missing side length and perimeter of three polygons. Then they watched an Educreations lesson to check their work. Once they finished this, they logged into a new teacher portal web site to access two new perimeter activities.
Finally, during the technology portion, the students viewed and took notes on two Learn Zillion lessons about rectangles with the same area but different perimeters, and rectangles with the same perimeter but different areas.
For HOMEWORK there is an assignment posted to Google Classroom, the homework page. There is a writing journal entry due tomorrow and we will have a quiz covering perimeter and area.
Math ran over today, so we headed straight to lunch and recess.
After recess the students worked independently while I met with individual students to do informal reading assessments. I had so much testing to do so I didn't meet with guided reading groups. Each group did have an independent assignment, though.
After completing their reading group task, the students viewed 2 video resources about the process of decomposition of organic materials. Then they describe the process, using words and pictures, in their science journal. Finally, the children continued working on their Powtoon presentations for their issue.
Tigers: The students received a new book and read through it, listing unknown words on a sticky note.
Panthers: The children read chapter 7 and wrote a summary in their RRJ.
Leopards: The children read 2 chapters (8 and 9?), marking places that were surprising with an exclamation mark, and places that were confusing with a question mark. Then, in their RRJ, they explained what they learned about Miss Tobias.
Lions: The children read 2 chapters (10 and 11?), marking places that were surprising with an exclamation mark, and places that were confusing with a question mark. Then, in their RRJ they explained why the Masons never had children of their own.
After our literacy block, the students headed to art with Mrs. Daniell.
