It may be YOUR Thursday but it is OUR Friday!

We do not have school tomorrow due to Inauguration Day.  So, today was kind of like a Friday!

This morning the children attempted our weekly puzzles, had a chance to read the school newspaper, and then got to choose a skill to practice.  After the announcements we went over the solutions to the puzzles.

Next, the children continued working on their European Explorer trading cards while I met with several individuals to continue my January, informal, reading assessments.  Before going to math, we shared facts we had learned about various explorers.

In math we began by reviewing last night's homework.  Then we took a formative covering word problems involving intervals of time.  These have been graded and returned to students.  Most did very well!

After the quiz, we worked together, as a whole group, to solve word problems involving both time and money.

Then the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When they returned to class, we began our literacy block.

The students used today as a Finish Up Friday, type of day.

They worked on completing their written business proposals and their presentations.  They also completed the non-fiction text feature, Google Slides assignment.

I met with all three WTW groups to give them their quiz.  These have been graded and returned to students.

After that, I worked with individual students, helping them with various assignments.
