Fantastic Friday

This morning the students had a chance to work on their WTW definitions and sentences, or choose a skill they wanted to practice since it is Free Choice Friday.  Then we watched the announcements and reviewed the answers to yesterday's puzzles.

After that, since the music teacher was absent and didn't have a substitute, we used to practice understanding the elements of music.

Next, we switched for music and took a Go Noodle brain break.  Then we did a fraction based warm up, multiplying fractions to triple a recipe, and reviewed last night's homework.  Next the students took the weekly formative.  This has been graded and returned to students.  Look for it in home folders this evening.

After math, the students enjoyed lunch and indoor recess.

The children spent the afternoon with a substitute, as I had to go to the dentist to get a tooth stuff!

With the substitute, the students viewed a Google Slides presentation explaining idioms and then listened to a story, Monkey Business, which contains many idioms.

After that they worked independently on a few tasks.  First, they chose an idiom, explained it in their own words, used it in a sentence, and drew a picture to show its meaning.  After that, they used Mrs. Allaire's web site, to do an online scavenger hunt to learn about mixed media messages.  Finally, they had time to finish the ad critique part 2 and taking notes on the 12 different ad techniques.

Have a great weekend!!
