Fabulous Friday - Early Dismissal

So...being a Friday and an early dismissal, we had to make changes to our schedule in order to finish things up and take our math quiz.

After watching the announcements, I reviewed with the class what we needed to accomplish before the end of the school day and, together, we decided upon a schedule.

First, the students had time to complete any unfinished work from our literacy block.  This included the state informative paragraph organizer, cursive practice papers, and the African American trading cards.

During this time I introduced a new math web site, called Ten Marks, to students who had completed all of their work.  Parent letters about this site will be coming home this evening.

Next I reviewed today's math quiz, so that the expectations were clear. Then we had a quick fire drill.  When we returned to class the students completed the math quiz.  These have been graded and returned to students.

After the quiz, I passed out the Ten Marks parent letter and we practiced logging in and explored the site.  Please look for this letter in your child's home folder.  It has their log-in information.

Before going to lunch we shared homework writing journals.

After lunch we had a class meeting.

We began by sharing what we were thinking about.  Most of the students were thinking about getting home early and relaxing.  I can't say I blame them!

After that we exchanged thank yous and compliments.

Then we began exploring the idea of growth is something you get not something you are.  We watched a Class Dojo video about this and then discussed it.
