Thrilling Thursday

This morning, after the announcements, we read about, discussed, and identified characteristics of the 3 regions of Maryland.  The three regions are the Atlantic Coastal Plain, the Piedmont Plateau, and the Appalachian Mountains.

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

Today, in math, we continued to round multi-digit numbers to any place.

During the small group math instruction, the students practiced rounding the population of Garrett County in 2010 to the nearest 10, 100, and 1,000, using number lines.

During math with a partner, the students engaged in math discourse as they payed a game of Rounding Scoot.  They completed task cards focusing on rounding tot he nearest ten thousand.

Finally, during the technology rotation the students completed their Ten Marks rounding assignment from yesterday and then practiced rounding using the site, Brain Racer Rounding.

After math the children enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When they returned to class we began our literacy block.  Today the children identified evidence and reasons, from text, to support a statement about mussels.  Then they watched a Google Slide presentation about note taking during research.  After that, they had the chance to completed their charactyer analysis.  Finally, they were to watch a Learn Zillion lesson about identifying and correcting sentence fragments.

At the end of the day we had a class meeting, let by Mrs. Mitch, identifying good time to use the restroom.

THEN...during dismissal our "Critters" for the terrariums and aquariums arrived.  So, some of the students began distributing the live materials.

It was a crazy end of the apologies for anything that may have been left at school.
