Fabulous Friday

This morning the students chose between reading quietly, practicing their keyboarding skills, or practicing math concepts, since it was free choice Friday.  Then, after the announcements, the children went to art with Ms. Thomson.  During music, the students attended a flag raising ceremony in honor of Veteran's Day.

When they returned to class. we reviewed the puzzles from yesterday's morning work and discussed expectations for Monday's field trip.

After that, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Then we began our rotations.

During the small group, teacher-led, instruction we continued solving 2-digit by 1-digit multiplication problems using partial products and the area strategy.  The last two groups were also introduced to the standard algorithm.

During math with a partner, the students worked in groups of 3 to complete two multiplication problems using the area strategy.  Then they played a card game called "Guess My Number" to increase their multiplication facts fluency.

Finally, during the technology rotation, the students completed an assignment on Prodigy.  If they finished early, they practiced their basic facts using Xtra Math.

After math, the children ate lunch.

When they returned to class the students worked on their literacy block assignments from earlier this week.  These assignments included identifying elements of a play from "Wali Dad", and explaining how they help them understand characters and events.  They also worked on a WTW practice activity.  Finally, they practiced illustrations for their historical fiction stories.

Since many students had violin  during this time frame, I didn't meet with a reading group or assign anything new.

Have a terrific weekend!
