Marvelous Monday

This morning, after the announcements, Ms. Snyder visited us and read us a book called, "What if Everybody Did That?" and discussed respect and responsibility with the children.  Then the students created a page, for a class book, identifying something they shouldn't do.

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

Then we did an, Eliminate One!, math warm up before beginning our rotations.

During the small group instruction, we practiced using partial products and area models to solve 3- and 4-digit by 1-digit multiplication problems.

During math with a partner, the children engaged in math discourse, as they practiced their basic multiplication facts while playing the card game, "Shout!"

Finally, during the technology rotation, the students watched two Khan academy lessons about multiplying 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers with and without regrouping.  Then they used the site, Drag and Drop Math, to practice what they learned.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and indoor recess.  Then we began our literacy block.

Today we read the play, "The Raven", and discussed the main character Trish, as a whole group.

Then, we ended the day with a motivational guest speaker, Kinja Dixon, who talked to us about the puzzle pieces to happiness; success, health, emotional control, the hunger to gain new knowledge, and loving what you do for a living.  It was a fabulous experience!!
