### TGIF!!!!

This morning the students came in and worked on the Learn Zillion lesson focusing on identifying and correcting run-on sentences.  Then, after the announcements, they went to music with Ms. Thomson.

After music we came back, took care of a few housekeeping items, and switched for math.

Following our Go Noodle brain break, we had shortened math rotations.  During the small group instruction we reviewed rounding to the tens, hundreds, and thousands, using the number from the task yesterday.  During math with a partner, the children continued playing Rounding Scoot, practicing rounding multi-digit numbers to the ten thousands.  Finally, during the technology rotation the children practiced rounding by completing an assignment in Prodigy.  Then they practiced the basic facts using Xtra math.

Next, the students took a math formative on rounding multi-digit numbers to any place.  These have been graded and returned to students.  Look for them in home folders this eveing.

After math the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When they returned to class, we finished putting the live materials into the terrariums and aquariums...this resulted in a small, but controlled, circus in the portable...and I was the ring leader!  LOL!  This is not in my wheel-house!!!  But, together we got the job done.  I should have taken pictures for your entertainment.

Finally, we began our literacy block!!  First the students took a reading formative where they identified reasons and evidence an author provided to support a particular point.  Then they edited and revised their character analysis (both paragraphs) for correct capitalization and sentence structure.

We ended the day with a brief class meeting.  We shared the best part of our week and exchanged some thank  yous and compliments.

It must had been hilarious to see what was going on with the little critters. Maybe next time you can snap a few pictures. Sounds like a productive day. Have a great weekend!
