Terrific Tuesday

This morning, prior to the announcements, the students worked on their keyboarding skills using Typing Club.  After, we began our social studies lesson.

Today, the children worked with partners to read an article about Martin Luther King, Jr, identify the main idea and write a summary of the article.  Then they worked independently to complete a timeline, explaining important events in his life.  While they worked I met with individual students to continue my monthly, informal, reading testing.

Next, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Then, to warm up math brains, the students worked with a partner to a 3- and 4-digit multiplication and division problem.  After that we reviewed last night's homework.  Then we began our rotations.

During the small group instruction we practiced "unpacking" word problems involving additive and multiplicative comparisons.  During math with a partner, the children continued working on the elapsed time task cards.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students practice solving multi step word problems.  Those who finished early used Xtra Math to increase their basic fact fluency.

For HOMEWORK there are 2 word problems (1 worksheet) linked to GC - Holman's Homework.

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

When we returned to class we began our literacy block.

During our literacy block, I continued testing individual students for the monthly, informal, reading assessments.  The students completed their new WTW word sorts.  Then they worked on their business presentations.  After that, they read two text about snow and completed an organizer identifying the main  topic and comparing the details in each.  Finally, they worked on the non-fiction text features Google Slides assignment.

HOMEWORK is posted on GC - Holman's Homework.
