Thrilling Thursday

This afternoon, I had a math training to attend in Rockville.  So, after dropping the students off at lunch, I left, and the children spent the afternoon with a substitute, following plans I had left.

This morning, prior to the announcements, the students attempted to solve our weekly puzzles and then worked on a WTW practice activity.  

Before our science lesson, I reviewed my expectations for the afternoon and created an independent work chart, for our literacy block this afternoon, with the children.  Then the children continued reading about the dangers facing the Chesapeake Bay and taking notes of the graphic organizer capture sheet.

After science, we switched for math and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Then we redid the Skittles warm up from yesterday and reviewed last night's homework.  Then we began our math rotations.

During the small group instruction we practiced using the partial quotient model to solve 4-digit by 1-digit problems.  During math with a partner, the children worked on their basic division facts and understanding remainders, while playing the board game, Remainders Race.  Finally, during the technology rotation, the students practiced their basic multiplication and division facts using, Multiplication Division Practice Zone.

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

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and outdoor recess.

When they returned, they had their literacy block with a substitute.

During the block they completed a comprehension worksheet, related to their guided reading text.  Then they completed any social studies task they hadn't finished from earlier in the week.  After that, the children worked on their inquiry project.  Some students were revising their written work and others worked on their presentation.

The sub met with all reading groups.  Each reading group identified the 5 key words they circled for homework last night and discussed commonalities they noticed.  Then they orally rehearsed a summary.

Homework is posted on Google Classroom.
