Fabulous Friday

TGIF!  This has been a crazy week full of changes.  I am glad to see it come to an end!  :-)

This morning, I had to give the In View retest to a group of third graders.  So the rest of our classroom was split into two groups and went to either Mrs. Beshore's room or Mrs. Sligh's room.  There they listened to a story and worked on a free writing activity using Powtoon or Google Slides.

When they returned to class we took a Go Noodle brain break and then began a shortened literacy block.

While I met with a reading group (that's all we had time for) the students completed the paragraph organizer for their inquiry project and finished any other work from this past week.

Green:  First we reviewed the name strategy--when good readers come across a proper noun that hey find difficult to pronounce you can just say the first letter, since it won't change the meaning of the text.  After that we reviewed their lists of unknown words from homework.  After that we shared the facts they copied from pages 4 and 5 and the green questions they wrote to match, from yesterday's classwork

After our literacy block, the students enjoyed outdoor recess and lunch.

After recess the students took a math quiz.  These have been graded and returned.  Look for them in home folders tonight!

After math we shared homework writing journal entries, and began our camp out.  Then we watched The Magic School Bus: Holiday Special and ate smores.

Have a great weekend!
