Terrific Tuesday

This morning the students practiced their keyboarding skills using Typing Club.  After the announcements we shared a few things about our weekend.  Then the students used various links to create online trading cards to represent European Explorers.  AS they did this, I met with individual students to begin my January informal reading assessments.

Next, we switched for math, took a Go Noodle brain break, and completed a math warm up.  Then we began our rotations.

During the small group instruction, we used a umber line to solve word problems involving intervals of time.  During math with a partner, the students played a Toss and Talk game providing practice in converting units of time.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students practiced working with hours and minutes using this link.

For HOMEWORK the children need to complete the worksheet we began in small group.  It is also linked to GC - Holman's Homework.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and indoor recess.  Then they went to PE with Mr. Smith.

After PE, we returned to class and began our literacy block.

While I continued assessing individual students for the informal, monthly, reading data, the children worked independently on the following tasks.

First,  a few students completed their written business proposals.  Next, the entire class worked on finishing the chart identifying the origins, destinations and goals of Ferdinand Magellan.  Today, they added the results of interactions with the natives and 2 additional key details to it.  After that, the students worked on their business proposal presentations.  Finally, those who finished early began an assignment identifying various text features using a wide variety of resources.
