Marvelous Monday - The start of PARRC

This morning, after the announcements, the students took the ELA/Literacy Unit 1 section of the PARRC.  I was very pleased with the way the children tackled this task.  I saw them take their time and use great strategies.  We can't ask for more than that!!

After testing, they enjoyed indoor recess and lunch.

When they returned to class, we began our math block with a Train Your Brain focusing on a multi-step word problem.  Then we began math rotations.

During the small group instruction, we began using strategies to represent and solve multi-step word problems.

During math with a partner, the children engaged in math discourse to create a bar graph representing data on a chart.

Finally, during the technology rotation, the students worked on a Ten Marks assignment focusing on using bar graphs and picture graphs to answer questions.


In between our first and second rotations, the children went to PE with Mr. Benco.

I have to say the students were exhausted after testing.  I commend their attempts to stay focused, but in hindsight, I wish I had not forced math on them today.
