Fabulous Friday

This morning, before going to music with Ms. Thomson, the students identified one thing they are thankful for on a paper leaf to be added to our school's Gratitude Tree.

After music, we watched the morning announcements and went over the answers to the puzzles from yesterday's morning work.  Then we took a Go Noodle brain break and had math, in our homeroom.

Students in my math class watched a Learn Zillion lesson about using an area model to solve 3- and 4-digit by 1-digit multiplication problems.  Then they completed a follow up worksheet to practice what they had learned.  Compacted math children completed an assignment, left by their teacher, in Google Classroom.

As the students worked, I met with individuals to complete my November informal reading assessments.  Mrs. Mitch was available to help students with their math.

After math, the children enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When the children returned to class we began our literacy block.

I spent some time reviewing my expectations for today's reading formative.  For each question, I described, and listed on the Promethean board, what was required to receive a P.

Then, while I met with WTW groups to give the formative, the students worked on their reading formative, which I will grade over the weekend.  Then they continued cleaning up and illustrating their historical fiction stories for our class book.

We ended the day with our weekly class meeting.  First, we shared what we were doing this weekend.  Then we exchanged thank yous and compliments.  Finally, we continued our study of the growth mindset by watching a Class Dojo lesson about neurons.  We discovered that when we challenge ourselves, our neurons fire to our brains which helps our brain grow smarter!!
