Fabulous Friday

This morning, before going to music, the students watched a Brain Pop lesson about identifying the theme of a text and then completed a follow up, online, activity.  After that, if they had time, they completed any unfinished work.  After music, we watched the morning announcements and went over yesterday's puzzles.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Then we reviewed last night's homework and did an "Eliminate One" warm up.  After that, the students took the week 4 math formative.  These have been graded and returned.  Look for them in home folders this evening.

After the formative, the students worked on improving their multiplication fact fluency using either selected web sites or playing one of two card games.

The students enjoyed lunch and indoor recess after math.  Then we began our literacy block.

I began by showing the children the week 4 reading formative, explaining the directions, and providing a framework for their responses.  I also reminded them to revisit the text and told them they could use the chart we created together, in class, yesterday.

As I met with small groups and individual students, to continue my informal monthly reading assessments, the children completed the week 4 reading formative and the community profile for Clarksburg.  They also identified the meaning of words with similar roots.

Green:  We met to review tricky vocabulary and confusing parts of the text, "The Good Liar" to help prepare them for my monthly reading testing.  Then I met with individual students to conduct the assessments.

We ended the day with our weekly class meeting.  First we shared our favorite meals...which was not the best idea because we all ended up hungry!  LOL!  Then we exchanged thank yous and compliments.  Finally, we watched a Class Dojo lesson about persistence.
