Terrific Tuesday

This morning the students continued drawing a diagram of the living materials in their aquariums and using resources to identify one characteristic for each.  We did have to stop mid-way to discuss the importance of reading the resources and identifying something new they had learned.

After science we took a Go Noodle brain break and switched for math.

During math we took the MAP-M.  This is the computerized, self-adjusting math assessment used to drive planning and instruction.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.  Then they went to PE.

When they returned to class, I modeled how to research and take notes, using the provided graphic organizer, for their Native American tribe.  after that, while I met with some reading groups, the students worked to complete their research organizer.  Then they explained how organisms used their habitat in the book, A Log's Life.  Finally, they completed the Learn Zillion lesson about sentence fragments.

Pink:  We reviewed their flashcards and reread their book.  Then we made inferences based on similarities and differences between the generations.  HW:  Practice site word flashcards and reread book.

Orange:  We reread pages 8-12 and discussed inferences we made based on what the text says and our background knowledge.  HW:  Read pages 13-17.

Green:  We reread page 9 and drew a conclusion, a backwards inference, as to why horses have become less important in our society. HW:  Read pages 10-15.

I was unable to get to the blue group.  :-(  I will definitely meet with them tomorrow.
