Fabulous Thursday

This morning the children worked on figuring out our weekly puzzles.  Then we watched the morning announcements, which were long since they covered two weeks.  After that, we reviewed the answers to the puzzles.  Then, the students had time to complete the Martin Luther Kin timeline and the comparing two texts about snow.

After that, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  After that, we did a warm up to prepare for the EMAT, and MCPS math formative that we have to give to students.  Then the students took the assessment which focused on multiplication and division.  Since this is a pilot year, the scores are not recorded, but we are required to administer it.

After math, the children enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When they returned to class we began our literacy block.  First, the children had 45 minutes to complete any unfinished work from the week.  This included comparing the two pieces of text about snow, completing their business presentations, and comparing the two articles about calcium.

After that, they visited the media center for a lesson about stereotypes impacting the marketing of materials on the web.

Finally, we paired up with students in Mrs. Bigelow's class to share our business presentations.

At the end of the day the children cleaned out their folders and baskets so that we will be ready to start the second half of the school year when they return on Monday!
